thank you so much for the ‘quilt love’! all credit goes to barbara though…i was just being a copy-cat. 😛
some of you were wondering how i planned on quilting the quilt. that’s simple. since i loved everything about the original quilt, i’m going to quilt it in the same manner.
if you own a copy of the december (2007) ‘vintage quilts’, you’ll see that barbara simply quilted x’s all over the middle portion of her quilt. in my opinion, that’s the best choice since it won’t take away from the design itself. sure, you could do all sorts of fancy and detailed quilting on this quilt, but, in this case, i think simple is better. for the borders, i’ll do a cable design.
like i said, a copy-cat. i’m shameless, but i’m loving every minute of the quilting. this is what i’ve been saying that i was going to do once classes and christmas was over with. i’m not feeling one tiny bit of guilt about sitting in my chair and quilting from afternoon right up through bedtime. 🙂 the girls and i have watched 5 episodes of ‘bleak house’ and i even slipped in a viewing of one of my all-time favorite movies: ‘sweet land’. love, love, love it. if you haven’t seen it, i encourage you to. such a wonderful and touching story.
okay, back to quilting!
