Design Wall: moving right along
So here is my wall with a few more wedges completed. I still have about 20 more to press open but I have been distracted (see below). However the big news is that I think I know what I am going to do with them. I am so excited about the idea and a little concerned that I may not be able to figure out how to execute it.
I have not been able to work on the above much because of this:
The quilting is finished and I am so happy with it.
Didn’t the cats turn out great? What I learned is that even though my echoing has a lot of bobbles, the more lines I included the better it looked.
When I was quilting this last row I suddenly looked at this block and saw barbed wire. Don’t ask where that came from but that’s what I see.
I quickly cut, sewed and pressed the binding and here I am sewing it on.
I only got part of the turned binding on when I found I was getting tired so I quit and will get back to it today.
edit 2/22/12: The cats quilt is done, washed, dried, and was placed on a sleeping DH yesterday morning. I hope to have pictures of him and the quilt later this week.
Now I realize that sometimes it seems like all I do quilt and/or talk about quilting. But sometimes we do other things. This past week we opened surprise packages from my mother.
This is a blurry picture of the owl bag she sent me. I collect owls, mostly glass owls, and she just knew that I would love this bag. It is large enough to hold the file folder I use for my Weight Watcher’s paperwork so it is going to see a lot of use. What I really like about it is that it has an inside and an outside zipper compartment so I can carry personal items as well as work.
And this is what she sent to DH. What a sense of humor she has, huh?
Of course so does he. When I looked at this I realized that this is what I have to look forward to…….in the not too far distant future.
So while we are waiting for what seems to be in my future, it is time to check out all that is going on at Patchwork Times.
