I am finishing up my 12 x 12 chartreuse quilt. I thought I was finished last night, but as I lay in bed trying to calm my hyperactive brain, the thought popped into my head that it needed more quilting. In fact, it needed some wild, crazy obsessive quilting. Good thing it is only 12 x 12. Here's a little peek at a section before added quilting:
And the same section after.
I have had a whole lot of fun with this.You will remember my chartreuse tryout a couple of weeks ago, part of which landed at the top of my newly renovated blog design. It is a new look for me, but something I have been fiddling with in somewhat different ways for awhile. It really comes down to the idea of drawing/doodling with thread as part of the design. I have another idea for using this approach for a larger piece that I think might work for another show. I know, I said I wasn't going to make quilts to order for particular shows anymore. I'm still thinking about it, but it seems like something I really want to do. Of course the deadline is looming.
