I've filled the negative space around the "stars" and, as predicted, like it better and better as more thread is added. Can there ever be too much quilting? I think not!
|Filling the negative space|
I marked guidelines with washable fabric markers, switching back and forth from a white marker on the darker fabric to a blue one on the lighter fabric.
|Background and borders are done.|
Two things I know for sure:
- This quilt cannot handle any more swirly designs, and
- I can't take any more ruler work! So there!
In other news, Amy's dino stuffie is finished!
Her nephew, Holden, loves Angry Birds, so we think he'll get a kick out of the fabric.
|Aren't I adorable?|
Spring is sprung, and it's time for yard work in this part of the world.
My first chore of the season was to rip down and rebuild a brick wall that wraps around a raised patio and acts as a planter. The wall had settled over the winter and had a distinct lean to it!
|Yikes! Leaning wall of impending disaster.|
|De-construction in progress|
I'm happy to say the fix took only six-and-a-half hours from start to finish. It seemed like a good idea for the first hour....
It would have taken longer, but my husband found me and took pity. He helped for the last 45 minutes...and was I grateful!
|Level and sturdy once more|
To erase that ugly memory, let's look at Day & Night again. I've only about 50 pictures to choose from! Ha!
Yup. That's better!
