My next quilt up on the frame is a big one! 94×115. This morning I spent some time designing what I was going to quilt in the borders:
And pondering what to put in the center:
Then it depends on how the threads play with the machine and the fabrics, how much manipulating I may have to do in order to make the quilt lay flat when finished (this one doesn’t look like I’ll have any to do! YEAH!), and the other parts of life that creep up affect it as well….like thunderstorms at this time of the year.
Here’s yesterday afternoons sky as the storms crossed over:
Of course then there’s always that one last distraction, the furkids. My biggest one has taken to spending his day in a new location:
Right beside the deck doors in front of our rocking chairs. Where he can’t miss seeing everyone (or every dog) who goes in and out of the house! Smart dog!
So, how long does it take to quilt a quilt? As long as it takes to get it right. LOL Which may or may not be very fast, but that doesn’t matter as long as the end product looks terriffic!
I’ll try to remember to post pics of this as I go. When I get involved in a quilt, I not only tend to forget to eat, but I also tend to forget to stop and take pictures. And it’s hard to blog post about quilting without pictures!!!
