Though I have not posted in over a week, I have most definitely been busy. I have several quilts finished for my clients, and am now working on a small wall-hanging of mine. I'm really not at all convinced that I like this before the quilting, but I will finish it before I opt not to bind. My goal was to create a quilt from solids that can be shown at quilt shows in a small quilt category (under 40" per side). Hindsight tells me that the Moda Crossweaves may have not been the best fabric to use. A batik or mostly solid would have been better. None the less, I am quilting the heck out of it, hoping that I will like it better in the end. After today, I have a sore back and wrists, but no added love!here of the Japanese Ladies (maybe you've seen it in a magazine...). I'm a fan of her quilts. Yesterday was interesting listening to the much divided discussions over crystals on quilts. I don't remember too many of them in the show that were twinkled up, but Zen Garden does have lots of very tiny crystals - 3mm ones. It just twinkled because it was hanging beneath a bright light fixture and a skylight. It almost seemed that the guests had been listening to the pre-election crap too long. The crystal-no crystal discussion was taking on an election tone. None the less, this quilt was appreciated and it was fin talking to people about it's making.
