I am so excited. This is the new BOM from FatcatPatterns. And it is in addition to the fish BOM she has going. Well, I collect hollow glass owls and then some other owls as well and I just couldn’t pass this one up. This little owl is block 1. And to add to the craziness of all the BOMs I am working on, I am thinking about doing two owl quilts with the other one in “funky” colors. That idea will have to wait. Anyway, this is the only thing that is on my design wall at the moment.
This has been what has taken up most of my quilting time. And this is how I left Easy Street Sunday night. I think I am a little over halfway done with the quilting.
I am quilting it with a panto from Urban Elementz, Tapestry. I like the texture.
But it is funny that it really can only be seen on the borders and the back. In case I haven’t mentioned it, this quilt is 101” square and one of the largest quilts I have done. And now that it is almost done, I am really liking it more and more.
Saturday I took some time off from quilting and we did a little antiquing, something we like to do a lot. Anyway, the only thing we bought was this pin. Isn’t she beautiful? The face is hand painted porcelain and the gems are Swarovski Crystals and swing freely. I am wearing it as a pendant and feel quite elegant.
My plans for this week are to finish the quilting on Easy Street and to put borders on a charity quilt I have had on the back burner for far too long. I also have to take the stitches out of a section of the dragon. It seems that my basting didn’t hold the applique pieces tight enough on the background and it moved enough to leave wrinkles. So out will come the stitches around the wrinkles and then I will secure that section with pins, the kind that stick. My new plan is now that I will pin each section as I come to it and hopefully no more wrinkles.
