Liar! Liar! Quilt’s on Fire!
As tired as you may be of hearing about this scrappy quilt, you can’t be as tired as I am, working on it….. There was an annoyingly slight problem with a puffiness of the large squares in every one of the 9 star blocks. So, I thought long and hard about it and came up with a solution. I did what any one of you would surely have done….
I got out a pack of matches and I burned it!
It has been difficult to keep myself motivated to work on this HUGE scrappy quilt. I started working on it May 23rd. More than two months spent on one project??? This certainly has been an exercise in futility patience. I don’t think I will be doing any more of that for a good long time.
I brought the variegated thread on July 17th. But put off doing any more quilting until the 21st.
Today I began quilting the beige sections. I was dreading this last and final step in the finishing of this quilt.
It is difficult to see the quilting in this pic, but I knew the puffiness had to be squashed. I went with a design by Leah Day called Pebble Ripples.
The backing part is NOT puffy, just the quilt top. I have one square completed…. 8 more to go. No, I did not burn the quilt in real life, just in my imagination, and in the design of the quilting in the warm coloured sections.
