I have managed to get two of my quilt tops quilted. The Wee Wander quilt has a larger stipple around the edges with a smaller one in each Wee Wander fabric. There is no quilting in the 1/2" white sashing, but there is two rows of straight line stitching in the blue border. The boy quilt is just cross hatched all over with a variegated thread. Not very interesting but I do like the added interest the thread adds to the charcoal background.
I have a goal to have these quilts in the post by the end of this coming week. My chances of finishing them are higher than posting them as my ability to parcel things up and post things is - as history has established - abysmal. But I remain optimistic.
Fabulous quilting and the variegated looks brilliant! I have had a quilt for a very long time that I keep meaning to post!! Thanks for the reminder ;)ReplyDelete
have you slept at all this last week or two?ReplyDelete
NIce quilting. Getting things off in the actual mail is also a problem for me, maybe there is postaphobia or something?ReplyDelete
Such beauties to be posting away. Congrats on two great gifts.ReplyDelete
Thanks for posting the photo of the completed boys quilt (I posted it on my Facebook page last week). It's such a striking pattern and colour combination, I think you've done the right thing keeping the quilting simple (not uninteresting!).ReplyDelete
I'm always amazed how long it takes to put a parcel together! But imagine the delight when your parcels arrive and are unwrapped! Definitely worth this final step after all that piecing and quilting!
I second the "have you slept this week " comment. Love both projects , and I think you can definitely finish them off and have them in the post by weeks end.ReplyDelete
PS. I hate going to the PO too!
I am exactly the same - after the joy of a finish comes the search for suitable packaging etc, dull, dull.....ReplyDelete
when did you have the time to get these done. They look great.ReplyDelete
What beautiful gifts. You must have been working like a crazy person! Good luck getting them finished and getting to the post office!ReplyDelete
Sending you good posting vibes ;)ReplyDelete
Your productivity Spurs me on. I seem to have fallen in a pit of uninspirednessReplyDelete
I love both quilts! Hope they're in the post by now!ReplyDelete
