Harmony quilt aka Crazy Impulse Quilt = Two rows pieced, and 3 to go.
Each diamond edge will fold back and become a curve. Stitching the curves will be done during quilting, and I'm anxious to see if I can manage it on the longarm!
Guild Challenge = couldn't sleep in the middle of the night, so drew my pattern and narrowed my fabric selection. I am ready to make the first cut!
Customer quilt on the frame = ripping out a whole row of stitches. :-(
The client requested wild roses, if possible. I drew up a panto, but it didn't work out. There is a considerable amount of fullness to "work in" on this quilt, and this panto did not capture the fabric the way I'd hoped.
Five hours of ripping, and I'm almost half way there. Rippit. Rippit.
Once the roses are gone I will use a panto that will swirl and encompass excess fabric much better. You know...the one I shoulda used in the first place! I was rootin' for the roses, but the quilt has other ideas. Dammit.
Please send good wishes my way tomorrow. I'll be hunched over the frame, seam ripper in hand, wishing I'd listened to my gut in the first place...
