Quilting The Quilt
This is a quilt that I made MORE than 2 years ago. How do I know it was MORE than 2 years ago? Well......because, in 2 months, I will have been living back in TN for 2 years. Moved back here in May 2008.
I made this quilt BEFORE I moved. I did, however, peice the backing sometime last year.
I can not decide whether the front is brighter than the backing. I am using a "power" purple thread & a pantograph from Willowleaf Studios called "DIZZY" - I felt like the design complimented the print in the fabric. As of right this second - it's half quilted.
The pattern for the quilt top is from Toad-U-Sew (in Florida) & it is called "Thinking Outside the Block". Very interesting - give s a 3D effect - sort of.....but really? Each block is a quarter Log Cabin.
I started this quilt for DD#2. It's still for her. She will be here on Easter weekend & I hope to have it completed & bound for her to take home with her.
