Good Monday morning! Hoping that everyone had a good weekend. Did you get all your goals accomplished? I didn't....Yeah! Well the way I see it I might as well be happy about it because whining will not make it any better. So a big round of applause for those of us with to many projects....WhooHoo! Anyway...Some progress was made on my Ultimate Super Scrap Happy quilt. It seems that the seams on this one are quite tricky. Solving the problem by clipping them the Jo Morton way in order to make them lay flatter and in the right direction.
See how the seam below is clipped right up to the stitches but not cutting the stitches. A little extra CAREFUL work but well worth the effort. I know your wondering why I used different color thread for piecing. Well I needed the bobbins that were full of thread. So if haven't used that color in awhile I use it for piecing, please don't tell the quilt police! The last time I got by with a warning, not sure what type of citation comes after that, rotary cutter suspension?, confiscation of my colored thread?
My design wall is 4x8, doesn't hold much. I'm thinking about making one whole wall in the studio a design wall. Crawling around on the floor just isn't working so well anymore. Almost to the halfway point on piecing.
Still undecided on the borders, they always give me troubles. There's plenty of HST's left to work up a border.
My other on going project is getting closer to done also. Its been moved inside for the many layers of paint and sealer. Today will be the last coat! FINALLY!
This made me really sad...I wasn't going for the antique crackle look but some how I got it on top of the dresser. Its staying because fixing it would mean more time. So we'll just say it adds character to the room! TADA! Problem solved!
I'm linking up with Judy for design wall Monday today. Hop on over to check out what others are working on!
Until next time "Quilt out of your Comfort Zone!"
