The Waiting for Spring Quilt Project
The Waiting for Spring Quilt Project is one of my favorite quilts. Ever. It’s an original design, using a set of my hand-dyed fabrics.
This has actually been quilted and bound. I love what I did to the large squares and the plain section on the right (a commercial batik).
The problem is I didn’t realize how bad my tension was for the middle section of small squares. Last year, I started to rip out the really bad sections, placing a safety pin where I needed to redo the quilting. Today, I thought it would be easier to just rip it all out so I wouldn’t have so many threads to weave in. That is just plain crazy, even for me. I think I will just applique flowers on the worst parts–on both sides–can I have too many flowers? I guess I could just cut it all up into potholders. What would you do? All suggestions are welcome.
I hope to get back here by the end of the week. I’ll share how I made those little squares (from Alex Anderson on The Quilt Show) and the quilting designs I used. Have a great week Also coming soon, The Liberty Bowl, how to attach a quilt sleeve and other dribs and drabs.
