Wow, where has this week gone? I’ve been working in the quilt studio this week, and today is no exception. I decided to change up my border design on my current quilt to give my friend, Candy, more options for trimming. I liked the previous design, but the new one is more in balance with this quilt. How’s that for a teaser?? I promise to show you the new and improved border soon.
That happens sometimes. I sketch out several quilting designs to see what looks best, plus what one the quilt owner likes. Once it is stitched out, you know if it works 100%. This one would work, but I wanted to do something that would be even better. So I don’t mind a bit of stitch removal time, aka “frogging a quilt,” in the interest of the end result.
Candy has been very patient and quietly waiting to see what I have done. She gets brownie points for patience! LOL I do not like rushing on a quilt if I can possibly help it.
This weekend I am spending it in the studio to make up for my being gone to Tahoe sailing last weekend.
The beading bug hit me BIG Time yesterday, so I drove over to my local bead shop and dug in their huge bead bin for awhile. I also needed some wire to make jump rings, so that was another reason to head over there. Hmmm… one day, I should do a tutorial on making Jump Rings. It is so easy and cost effective. Plus, I like the idea that I turned utilitarian metal into something pretty and decorative!
Keep watching for some pictures…. Hugs, Carla
