Thanks so much for all the kind comments on my last post! Just to update you, I have finished the quilt top and hope to be working on the back this weekend. The lovely ladies at my local MQG helped my decide on a backing color and are encouraging me to do concentric circles for my quilting lines. Hhmmm… I love those circles of course, and I think they would probably be great for this very linear quilt. However, I’m just not sure…. too much concentric circle quilting from bloomingpoppies? I mean does that just get a big, fat yawn? I’ll give it some thought during basting and get back to you. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated as always…. 🙂
Anyway, last week, I was finally able to convince Mr J., to hang this hardware we got at Ikea many months ago. My hope is that it will be a nice way to photograph/display some of my smaller wall hanging quilts.
Unfortunately, since we are renting our home right now, I have to live with the uuuhh, not so desireable color on the walls. It doesn’t make for the best photos but it will have to do for now.
I suppose it’s not fair to blame it all on the walls; my hope is to improve my photography skills this year…. as well as to buy a home where we can paint the walls. Anyway, I really like the look of this wall hanging system. It’s light clean and modern….. and I don’t have to bother adding a sleeve to the back for hanging, yes I’m a bit lazy that way!!
So in addition to finishing my Oakshott Untitlted quilt top, I also began working on some fun blocks with my new Superbuzzy fabric finds from a couple of weeks ago . I’m not so sure about this particular color combo yet, it’s definitely still a work in progress, really just a concept at this point. We’ll see what develops. I’ll likely be taking out a solid and the gray/white stripe print, and possibly adding in some more solid shades…. not sure yet. I think I will like them better with a larger amount and the full layout. But I’m enjoying the figuring it out part!
And lastly this week, I was able to complete just one more spiderweb block for the ongoing unkown project I have been slowing plodding my way through. Not sure why but just one of these blocks at a time is about my limit! No it’s not your eyes, the photo is a bit blurry. So I guess that is my week in review. I hope to have some good progress to show on Miss A’s bed quilt and my attempt at handquilting, by next week.
Happy weekend to all!
