Quilted Goodness - An update
This bit of quilted goodness shows what I have accomplished thus far on the quilt project.
First a big confession: I was trying to keep this a secret. In doing that I sort of adjusted the truth. This quilt is for my friend, Dave, who at least KNOWS that I blog here. He has on occasion looked at my blog. So when I was posting earlier, I said "she' to throw him off the track. Well, now he KNOWS it is for him so the secret is out.
((lesson for you- I can't keep my own secrets, so maybe you shouldn't tell me yours. ha ha))
The two big sections ARE separate. they will be joined in a quilt as you go manner. It is just easier for me to quilt in sections and then join. I don't have a long arm and the throat on my machine isn't big enough for me to feel comfortable quilting an entire queensize quilt on it.
I am loving this scrappy quilt. However, until I put the string blocks with it, I am not sure how it will work together. This may turn into TWO quilts. Now wouldn't that be a pity?
PS. Click on the picture to see the full view on Flickr. My layout here cuts it off a bit. Fixing that is a project for another day.
