I've climbed out of my quilting cave and joined the living! What an odyssey it's been working on this quilt. Here is part of the final product. I'll have to wait until the sun comes up and try to get a picture of the whole quilt. It is o-dark-hundred here and I want to get a post out this morning so you didn't think I'd been slacking off again.
I basically ended up with two quilts. The backside looks like a whole cloth quilt. So my question is, where do I put the label? This is what 40+ hours of custom quilting looks like from the back.
Front of the block.
Back of the same block.
This is one of my favorite blocks.
I like this one too.
I like this block also.....I'm in love with all of them!
I used Dream Wool batting on this baby. I love the look and feel the wool batting produces. It is warm in the winter and light and cool in the summer.....don't ask me how it does that.
I always, always quilt to music. CD's, IPod, radio....whatever makes beautiful sounds. Friday night when I finished Minglewood and was removing her from the machine, the Canadian Tenors version of Hallelujah written by Leonard Cohen started playing on my IPod. What a coincidence! The music expressed my feelings to a "T".
Today I will park myself on the couch and work on 400" of binding until my arm stops working and my hand can no longer hold the needle. It's a good thing for me that I love to watch football as that is what I'll have on the tube for the day.
More pictures tomorrow. I'm off to the shop Monday and teaching Tuesday, so I have to get as much done today as I can. I worked at the shop yesterday and it was so much fun seeing some of you that I don't often get a chance to see. I hope you are enjoying your morning coffee Judy!
P.S. Thank you all for your comments on my last post about picking out stitches. I'll try to answer each and every comment individually........soon.
