With the bottom two rows finished, I took it downstairs once again to see if I could get a shot of the quilting on the back...and again, I think it was too late in the day for the best contrasting light. The back fabric is pretty busy and that thin white bottom line thread might not show up at all. Either way, I could spread it out and see the whole of it.
The dense quilting on the block backgrounds means that the little embroidered scenes stand out from the rest of the quilt.
My quilting is sort of hit or miss, but this is going really well. I have some good ideas for the borders too if I can pull it off.
Of course, you can't spread a quilt on the floor without having a troop of quilt inspectors show up.
Sadie, I think it's purrfectly awful that there isn't even one cat on this quilt. What's up with that?
Well, even without cats, Smitty, it makes me want to streeeeetch out and snuggle. I'll be the cat on the quilt.
And there you have it. The best propurrties of a quilt in one word: snuggleability.
The wind is howling this morning, and the temperature is a chilly 26°F. There's almost a 100% probability that we'll be getting snow today. Fortunately, the grocery shopping is done, and so there's plenty of food to keep us fat and happy for the next week...emphasis on the "fat". Also, there's a mountain of laundry to do, and so that's where I'm headed next. It seems a tall order to get the remaining blocks quilted today, but I'm going to try.
