Thank you Quilt Goddess! I severely have Stars on my brain... I currently have three big star quilts in the works, and it's really becoming a problem...
But after piecing here's it was like, Yeeeha! that was fun, let's do it again!
I wanted to show you the back on my grandmother's Quilt. You can see all her Hand stitches in all the different colors... I love the thought of this... and yes, my brain is kicking in to play to play with this idea.... the back is just as lovely as the front, isn't it?
I was playing with a pattern that she did on her Pillow that I have...
Wouldn't this be so cute?
The other day, Alexis asked:
What I would like to ask is what fabric has been in your stash the longest?
I had to sit and stare at my fabrics for a while to figure this out...
I'm not sure... I actually having fabrics where from when I lived in MN, but I only brought them back with me this year... as far as being in NYC for 16 years, my oldest fabric is probably this:
A KID PRINT! who'd a thought! I rarely use novelty prints... not my fave...
I don't even know where or why I have this... I've never used it...
Annie asked, do you do your machine quilting on a longarm?
I machine quilt I on my JUKI TL- 98 Q
and I hand quilt.
Machine quilting is not my favorite thing to do... so I tend to both kinds to liven it up a little
I send a bunch out too, if I am not so attached to them, or if I have a great fear of messing them up!
Speaking of which, I need to focus on my star splitter today...
I took a break from it, and now it's time to get back on it..
Got any more questions?
It sure helps me think, and easier to post!
