I pieced the top of my son’s quilt today. Start to finish, it took twelve hours… And in that time I also tended the minion, went out for more thread, baked bread, cooked dinner, went outside to play, ate dinner, and took sundry rests.
Whew, I’m tired. But this was fun. I wish I’d picked up quilting sooner.
The picture doesn’t do it justice. You can stand over this and feel like you might fall through it and into outer space. It’s gorgeous.
It needs a border still, and I’m unsure of the color. I’m afraid my creative vision only specified the space fabric, in this particular pattern, and nothing more. I had to consult Mad Mo to find the right colors for the leading. The border is still a mystery to me, although I’m leaning towards TARDIS blue.
I also need to figure out how I’m going to quilt this puppy. My MIL’s old Bernina didn’t come with a walking foot.
