In-between prepping the extra bedrooms and cleaning toilets in preparation of the kids and grand-baby coming home for the holiday, today found me in the studio quilting my guy's quilt. He chose a pantograph design called: Grizzly Ridge:
Whenever I work with a pantograph, my current quilting "lesson" is learning to nest the rows. There's a lot of math in quilting...and for us right brain people, wellll, this can be a challenge! LOL! For some reason, when I REALLY like a quilt top I made, I get little nervous to quilt it. (Is that wierd??)
With relief, I'm really liking how this one is coming out!!
I'm liking variegated threads right now. Today I'm using a brown variegated thread from King Tut called Cedars. I like how it "flows" between the colors of my quilt:
|Whether it's the blues....|
|...or the reds....|
|...or the browns...|
I'm loving how the "design" is there, but in a subtle way.
I'm finding the variegated threads are complimentary to a quilt top this way.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you weekend was great!
