Okay, I promised some more shots of the Fresh Vintage Birds quilts [I don’t know it that will be its final name or not… I’m thinking of something with the word Aviary in it… today I’m thinking that at least] so here are a few more block shots that I took once I located my errant camera battery.
I’m at that stage of the quilt where I could just put the pieces together and be done with it, but instead I’m “FIDDLING” with it. Do you know what I mean? It’s a very technical term, I know, and all of us quilters know exactly what it means… and yet I can’t really describe it other than… I’m just FIDDLING with it!! My deadline to get it to the quilters early next week will soon put a stop to that I know but for now… well you know!
The other pictures I promised where some more shots of the quilts I’ve been working with where I’ve been mixing lines [these blocks were pieced by quilter Wilma Lawrence & she did a great job]. This is one of my new favorites, Wagon Wheels I’m calling them when I’m tired & not inspired to think up good names… Although one of my students last month came up with a name that has kind of stuck in my head…. Figs on the Prairie or Little Figs on the Prairie or something to that effect. We’ll see.
Needless to say, love the job my quilter did on it. She even put in some extra thin poly on top of my regular cotton batting and when she small stippled around the wheels ,the poly filled in the wheels to create kind of a faux trapunto look. I love them. All I have to do is bind it and wash it becuase this quilt just begs to be “wrinkled & crinkled” don’t you think?
