I really did plan on quilting this a lot more simply, with a lot more open space, but I just can’t help myself! I started doign the star/swirl fill in the border, and then I kept going in the body of the pretty quilt, and then pretty soon I was covering up every available square inch….
So here’s the quilt in all of its glory. I didn’t realize until I was all the way upstairs that it wasn’t flat and that the corner was flipped. I wasn’t going to run back down and up, though…
And a few close-ups:
I forgot to add to yesterday’s list that I want to make a coordinating doll quilt, too.
The blue thread on the top is from Superior — their King Tut line — it’s called Lapis Lazuli. Very pretty, although none of the pictures I took show that it is variegated. It’s quite subtle, so that’s not surprising, I guess.
I’ve got a sick kid home today. Not like puking or anything — just lethargic and not-quite-himself. So, a day, of lounging in my mom’s bed, a nap or two, and hopefully he’ll be back to normal soon.
Better unglue my fanny again and go get something useful done!
