I know I’ve been on the missing list on my blog for the past few weeks!I guess my only excuse is the fact that I have no real excuse!Maybe the snow got to me or maybe I just felt uninspired , but while in my doldrums I was working extremely slowly on my long arm. I can finally say that I have finished the quilting! Yay! So, the hand sewing begins now, I’m onto the binding.
I’ve decided to use the same fabric as the main quilt fabric for the binding, that’s Robert Kaufmans’ Japan. I really love how the edges are very harmonious with the body of the quilt. Here are a few detail photos of the quilting designs I used. I custom quilted everything free motion on my Handi Quilter. I’ve never actually used pantographs, always finding that what works best for my style of quilting would be a more unrestricted style allowing me to flow as I quilt.
So, I will try to stay more active with my posts, this also keeps me honest with my work! It’s a win, win!But, before I sign off I wanted to share some photos of some snow scenes so you will kind of get where my heads been. I guess I just have to remind myself that Spring is Just Around the Corner!Please!!!
Hope you are all warm and cozy, quilting away!
