I think I Know How To Fix It

Lakeville-20130715-00494

As everyone remembers, I was up in a  tizzy over this quilt top, which is for a very dear friend of mine, and I was just upset it wasn’t amazing. Well, I think I remedied the situation. I decided to use a brown for the border to make the center pop quite a bit more, and I really think it does. Once I finished sewing the top together, I’m going to stitch resist it in place and use bleach discharge and then blue fabric paint to make circles, which I think will really make it just that awesome! I hope this all works out as well as I hope, and I really think it will.

How Should I Quilt This?

Frozen Star 2

Later this week or next week, I’m planning on quilting this. I have no idea what to do. Part of me wants to do a simple design, and do grey thread, but then part of me wants to do something with turquoise thread, and just have some wild and crazy fun! What does everyone think I should do?

I Would Be Lying If I Said I Was Thrilled

Lakeville-20130714-00493

I’m working on this piece, and I’m just not in love with it. It’s not that I don’t like it, but I’m just not enchanted with it. I usually fall in love with a quilt once the piecing is almost done, and as I near completion on this quilt top, I find myself says… Meh. It’s nice and all, it really is, but I’m just not all that thrilled with it. I’m kind of tossing around the idea of what to do with a border, and I’m just not sure what to do about it.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

The start of my next project!

Lakeville-20130711-00475

I started my next project. After I picked out the fabric, it just kind of hit me what to do with them. I’m not gonna say exactly what I’m doing, but rest assured, it will be epic! The reason I’m not saying, is because it very well may change by the time I finish it! I’m quite fickle like that!

Frozen Star Gallery Posting!

Right now, at 2:30am I have decided that I really need to work on my gallery and organizing all of my pictures, so here goes nothing!

I’ve decided I will start with “Frozen Star” and I’ll make a gallery for each quilting project, so you can see the transformation from a pile of fabric into an amazing work of art. Well, most of them are works of art. Everyone has an off day! 🙂
