I swear no quilt in history has been put up and taken down from the design wall more.
I kept recycling the left over blocks that I call Psychedelic Baby Block into new design/layout ideas and now have an ample supply of samples for teaching the workshop.
I was in high gear to finish it for submission to the MQG’s Texas Museum Exhibit, but I realized that with the minimal quilting it would start to sag if hung for long. Like how I’ve already envisioned it as accepted for exhibit?
The softness is amazing. I don’t think I’ve even made a softer quilt.
Not only did I mix in leftover blocks, but my neutral scrap bin got dug into. Though no dent was made in that bin, texture was added through a mix of linens, flannels, and Osnaburg fabrics. Shockingly even with the shot cotton it quilted up lovely.
It was difficult to not throw in a print or two. It is one of the reasons I feel in love with quilting.
Here’s a little peek of the dot I added too.
Eleven year old boys are worthless at quilt holding for long, but good for showing scale.
I did it again and used a fabric from stash for the back. Twice I ran out of thread when quilting and of course both times I was smack dab in the middle of that red strip where it would show the most. I left it.
It’s a favorite Alexander Henry.
The binding I actually cut for my On Target Quilt before I changed my mind to something darker. I held onto it thinking it would work here.
It’s all perfect, just perfect;)
For Mother’s Day Jefe installed my flooring, cooked every meal and did the dishes while I went shopping.
I’m so thrilled with what I picked. That goes for guy and floor.
Happy Week Peeps!
Great quilt, great floor and great guy!
