|My Ayden came in with a "purple" icy pop for his distraught mommy;) See that little tan circle in there too. That is a lifesaver for pulling thread through the fabric and popping those quilters knots in nicely;)|
Blurry pic yes,BUT the point is this is the area of the Majestic top that had me huffing and puffing. In the beginning I had wanted to do a flower of some sort in the middle.
****Insert drama here...................Then I went to place the design on the quilt and pin it down. Went over to my machine and started to stitch using my darning foot. ****Urggggggghhhhh***** Stitches were coming out really small and tight and UGLY all around. A pickin' I went with Mr. Ripper and then back at it (just HAD to try again!) same thing. You get the idea right?
BACK TO THE ABOVE PIC-----------Hubby comes in and says"I don't think you will be able to do that on your machine." ME: " I should be able to do it." HUBBY: "don't think so,why don't you hand sew it with the thread on your machine?" ME: ****Urggggggggghhhh****
Next up Gutermann thread, FAIL! The "Quilters knots" were starting to come out as soon as I finished. AND it took a movie and a couple episodes of Smallville AND a tired right hand to get her done;)
Next day comes:) I figured I will get her all quilted and then I will figure out that darn flower yet.
Today I get the binding on and take a look at her again all put together. Right away I think I have to remove all those stitches and fill it in with some good ole' white perle #8 cotton. Crazy quilter on the loose!! That's right and that is what you see above in the first pic!
|Tomorrow I am taking a better pic of this flower I speak of so fondly;)|
None of my previous backings have had a pieced strip added. Cheers to finally doing it! I managed to take just about every print from the front and put them in the strip too. Thinking that floral print at the top really shines fabulously as well:):):)
|See the purple in the top right of the Shout Color Catcher? It took any bleeding from my purple quilt and the worries away!! Such a fabulous product! I had to brag about them.|
|Majestic measures 37x47|
Your stubbornness made me want to finish you in style even more---HA!! I am a STRONGER quilter.
Thanks for the memories. Hope you make it into a great new home!
P.S. For now you will be in my Growing Stitches Shop.
