|So far, sew good!|
A couple of days ago it looked like this.
After many hours of quilting I've finished the white background, the skinny blue border, and the squares where the rings connect to one another.
I've also (almost) finished quilting the rings. Unfortunately there is a failed experiment in the first row of rings (12 sections), so tomorrow I will rip and re-do.
|AARGH - wish I hadn't done that!|
Sometimes when I'm ambivalent about a design it helps to keep going. Sometimes it doesn't. It's always a gamble, and this time I lost. The design wasn't a bad idea, but my execution was not consistent enough to make it work. Yuck.
Ah, well. Win some, learn some.
In the meantime, another beautiful Frozen quilt came and went. Most of it was done with a pantograph, but the panel and its borders were custom quilted.
Also Fresh off the Frame is a quilt destined for an orphanage in Mexico!
The outside border (above) looks like striped fabric, but is actually (meticulously) pieced, and so is the back!
|My grandson was dressed the part, so we took a quick "Elfie" after his concert - ha!|
Try, Learn, & Grow!
P.S. I am also on Instagram under my blog name, FreshofftheFrame
