Done feels oh so Good...
So the red quilt is done. Well, the top is done, next comes the quilting process. Not sure yet what I'm going to do there... still pondering. There are SO many seams... I showed it at my Guild meeting last night, and you will see it full size just as soon as I can get some decent pics outside. Today is out as we are experiencing yet another lovely winter storm day- freezing rain, snow, rain-snow mix... take your pick. That's pick as in choice, not photo! (ha! trying to inject a little humour here to make up for this crappy weather.. I am SO tired of all this lovely "winteryness")
Here are a few shots taken on the livingroom floor - not great but proof that it is all done with borders on. As you can see I chose the more involved border with both piano keys and flying geese, but you knew that already didn't you? That's why it took a while. The piano keys just didn't look like they were "enough"...
As well as more variety of reds in my stash now, I'm left with a great number of little tiny triangles, both reds and lights. Like hundreds!! You just know I'm going to have to do something with these... I can't bear to toss them in the garbage. I think I feel another Miniature coming on... After all I am teaching a Miniatures class next week, so maybe it's time for a new Mini??? What do you think?
