Finished Sewing The Top

Lakeville-20130716-00501

 

I just finished sewing the top. Now that it is done, I’m trying to plan out the logistics of how I’m going to dye it. Not sure on the design yet, but I have a few plans. I need to find my upholstery thread! I’m definitely thinking of doing something radiating from the center. Then maybe blue on the 9 patch squares to make them pop!

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.

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?

Project Vicki Update!

Lakeville-20130712-00483

I’m still not exactly sure what I’m doing, but someday soon I might just figure it out! So far, I’ve decided to make this quilt a “Rippling 9 Patch”. Yeah… Basically it is a sea of rich browns, and then this blue is rippling through it. It’s not a blooming 9 patch, but based on it I guess. I just wanted to do something different, and I’m actually liking it quite a bit! Once again though, that may change and I could redesign everything at a moment’s notice, but we’ll see

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!

Picked out the colors for my next project!

Lakeville-20130711-00473

I’ve picked to colors of fabric for my next project! I’m not completely sure on the design yet, but it will involve these! Now, the fun part of this quilt is the fact that the blues I chose were all hand dyed by me about 3 years ago, and I have been hanging onto them for something special. I’ll let everyone know of a design as soon as I come up with one!
