In the works.......

1

With most of my quilts, I design as I go.  Sometimes it works out perfectly, and sometimes I am kicking myself because I wish I would have done something different.  Because of the way I design, I have to take a break from my projects and work it out in my head before I do something drastic like "quilt what I can't take out." That would be awful.  Truthfully - I can't and won't ever take out my quilting - there's too much of it.

So, when a plan works out and I love what I am quilting, then I can move forward knowing exactly what I am quilting.  This takes a huge amount of pressure off me and then comes the fun part of quilting a quilt.  

So, that's where I am at - the fun part where I know what I am doing.  Thank Heavens for that!

You are an artist Judi!

I've said it before, and I'm positive I'll say it again: your quilting is the most exquisite I've ever seen. I'd like to have your quilting brain--the artistic sense you have, and the skill at such even quilting.

Beautiful!

How do you get accurate diagonal lines.?? I have such a hard time with it. I love the diagonal look but it bugs me when its not perfect.

The quilting is fabulous! Of course all your quilting is fabulous or we wouldn't be here in checking in all the time to look at it. What really has me intrigued today in addition to your quilting is that yellow ruler in the picture. What is that??
TIA, Rose

I really love your quilting! I was just wondering what colour cotton you use on the white fabric? It doesn’t seem to be white - is it a cream? I would love to try this colour combo out myself on some of my quilts. Many thanks. Suzanne
