No Fabric left behind...
Once again proving:
1. No detail is too small to dither over
2. Even if a quilt is not headed for a National competition, I still expect it to be a showstopper.
3. Things always take longer than you think they will
4. You can have a room FULL to the rafters of fabric and not ~one~ of them is the right tone/pattern/shade of green for a border.
As Michaelangelo said, "I am Still learning..."
I thought the kaleidoscope would be quilted and hanging on the family room wall by now, after all Ricky Tims said it was fast and easy to make!
Let's move on to happier subjects shall we?? I love love love the way the table runner came out and it was made of total scraps. I want to make a bed sized one next. Now it was fast and easy and so much fun.
I quilted it with straight lines in gold metallic thread, and really shiny halogram mylar thread. The border came out kind of looking like plaid because I crossed the stripes.
( note to self, you can make something look plaid)
(note to you, I didn't want it to look plaid) (whatever, I am not ripping out the quilting now)
Then I kept going on improv piecing the rest of the little cut off pieces into a variety of hexie sizes...
then there are these
various sizes just made them according to scraps left over. The white one is pretty but appears to be a bit wonky??
then the biggest one of all...
I am headed back into the studio to seek the right border fabric for that stupid kaleidoscope quilt-in-a-day.
