I had Jackie quilt one quilt for me that I needed for the upcoming show end of April-May. I've been trying to get all the binding done, sleeves put on, and labels... So I have been hand sewing like a mad woman... Funny thing, I cleaned my studio last week, right... Can't find my perle cotton that has my THIMBLE in it... there is a lot to be said about a messy studio... I know where everything is when it's messy because I look at it for weeks at a time! But put it out of sight outta mind... LOL...Did I just, justify having a messy studio?
This is my last quilt that I need to FINISH for the show... I'm STILL machine stitching these bloody 1/2" wavy lines over this quilt... It's taking eons.... Parts got a but wacky... But I'm going with it...I fret less about making goofs on a quilt, as I know there will be many more to make, and with each one, some things will just work them selves out with more practice... Don't sweat the small stuff, make another quilt! I like that theory! ( for this quilt anyway) practice practice practice! (and wash it!)
My DQS10 quilt is bound, and I am playing with a few final touches to it... I thought perhaps a wee house on the alligator head of an island... ( Shela, I contemplated the golf ball on the alligator head, but I'm sticking with the house. haha!) That's OK, the lovely person reading that will understand it...
AWWW, see my Princesses? they woudln't care if a rock was under those pillows let alone a PEA!
A friend of mine whose children go to another school in NYC, did an after school project with the kids, and had them make quilt squares and donated them to me to make a quilt in honor of them for BASICS. I thought that was a great idea... I can't say no to that! Thank you Allison! And the kids of VCS, THANK YOU! I will put it together, finish it and send you all a picture!
