One more UFO quilted.
I made this quilt years ago – could be even 10 years ago. Manily out of scraps so of course there is very little in here that could be considered 100% cotton but it still worked and I loved it.
A few months ago I got around to putting on the blue borders – much nicer than the purple one I had obviously picked out….ewwwww……what was I thinking??? I just had to have play with the quilting stencil too….
Marked with Water Soluable Pen they were easy to see and came out so quickly with a squirt or three of water before hanging on the line to dry.
Betwee nthe stencil and the stipple quilting it certainly added up to lots of texture on the quilt.
I even played with quiting the borders. Not brilliant but considering I have rarely tried anything like this before I’m happy.
And just to show you get warts and all with my quilting……..look at the pucker in this bit.
On second thoughts – don’t!!!
Now just to get the binding done and it’s all finished. Ohh and I probably should put on a label but I feel so embarrassed to label my quilts. It feels a bit like I’m “blowing my own trumpet”. Does anyone else feel like this or do you just go ahead and label your quilts no matter what? I know for future generations that we should label what we make but I really don’t think my quilts are going to last that long – they tend to be used and used.
