Overquilters Anonymous

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!

    It looks great! i love the color combinations! I also love the costumes you made for the boys! What cuties they are and a good memory. You can handle basketball – think of it as sleep therapy for the boys LOL

    The quilting looks perfect – one of my struggles with overall quilting is to NOT quilt too densely.

    I’m quilting more leaves today – thanks for the encouragement!
