Will I came up with a few designs for the blocks. Didn't use some of the designs in my drawing, change my mind. lol It didn't have the look I was going for. The red dash lines are basting lines. Anya asked me this morning if I pin my quilts...... I don't, Sharon Schamber showed me how to baste the top half of the quilt and stabilize. I quilted all the red areas first, then basted the bottom half and stabilized by quilting all the red area. This way I can roll the quilt back and forth if I need to.
The back looks kind of lacy....... Sure love the Glide thread!!
Finished the quilt a little while ago, will take photos in the morning and post.
I pieced this quilt a few years ago, man you can really tell by the piecing. I found this old vintage panel back in 2005 before I started longarm quilting and one day decided on a block pattern, pieced it and this quilt layed around waiting to be quilted. I figured it was time......
I don't usually have a hard time coming up with design ideas but I think my brain has been in a fog lately. Should have this finished up by tomorrow.
YUP!! I took the other red and white quilt off the frame for this one.
We got this surprise this morning and more on the way.
Have winter storm warning out for the next couple of days.
It feels good to be home again, this past month was really hectic. Kevin had the most beautiful ceremony that I have seen in a long time. So many people, Military, fire department, police department, military humvee's, limos, so many. My heart goes out to my brother......... they gave my brother the flag off the casket.
My brother is a disabled vet, was in the Marine Corp for 27 years.
