Thank you all for your comments about my rebel block. You confirmed my thoughts exactly.....I'm not changing a thing! It was a long day of quilting.....and I'm still not finished with Once Upon a Vine. Maybe I'll get it finished tomorrow and take it off the machine so I can see what it looks like.
I could have quilted longer yesterday, but my back and aching neck were telling me to stop. I think I need to tipple more when I stipple.....maybe I was a bit to tense which tied my back and neck up in knots. I spent the evening in the recliner with a heating pad wrapped around my neck and watched TV.
I wanted something simple and classy in the center. Crosshatching adds an old fashioned look which I love in my quilts. I'm just an old fashioned gal! I stitched around each clump of grapes and added a few tendrils to nail the center down.
I'm achieving my "baskets in the vineyard" look.....but I won't know for sure until the quilt is off of the machine. I'm getting a little anxious to see the end result!
Happy Saturday. Little League team, here we come! I'll take the heating pad off of my neck before I get to the field. I don't want to embarrass my grandson.
