Thanks to everyone who voiced their opinion in my blog post about quilting for books, “do-able or eye candy?” It seems that most people like the eye candy quilting but also want designs that they would feel comfortable doing. Or to coin a phrase from a person on twitter, “do-able eye candy”. How is that for an answer!!!
Sarah I will send you an email!
And not for my dilemma…..it’s not a horrible dilemma, but I just can’t make up my mind! I have promised myself that I will sew and quilt a few things for myself this year, and I intend to follow through. I pieced this cute lap size quilt using colors that are a challenge for me, especially purple.
I used a green and purple shot cotton and some of Tula Pink’s parisville fabric. Usually before I even start making a quilt top, I already have the quilting designs in mind. But not with this one, I am not sure how I want to quilt it. One one hand, I want to quilt it like I quilted my paintfalls quilt, but on the other hand, I think I should try something different.
Usually when I am stumped, I go ahead and load the quilt and start quilting it. Sometimes, just starting the process gets the ideas flowing!
