Hello Friends, Happy Monday. First of all, I want to thank all of you who prayed for me. I was able to carry on with my work despite being quite sick. In fact, I pulled a couple or three all-nighters to get Autumn Mosaic Stars completed! The all-nighters, if nothing else, reminded me of my college days.
Carrying on the blue in the fall palette concept…
you see the center of the quilt with a variegated blue thread on the back of the quilt. I can’t quite show you the front of the quilt until it is officially featured, but I don’t mind showing a snippet of the back… because the back looks nothing like what it does on the front. You can see the seam where I hadn’t cut off the selvage — urgh, I wish I had now. But I thought I was going to save just a bit of time because I was running so late, and I was so sick when I worked on the backing. All the feathers were free-handed. The unscripted nature of things was sort of a pot-luck experience!
I had employed the same concept of quilting something where the back looks totally different from the front in my Sweet Bouquets quilt. I gave myself the same challenge when it came time to quilt Autumn Mosaic Stars (not very smart when one was so sick and pressed for time, if you ask me), and I was forced to look beyond the block make-up in planning my quilting scheme. While I can’t show you more of Autumn Mosaic Stars, you may certainly view more pictures of Sweet Bouquets here.
That’s all for now! I have a house to clean, and errands to run in my post-all-nighters start of a new week. Thanks for stopping by!
