What I am working on…

Here are a few things that are keeping me busy these days.

I really struggled with piecing a “modern”theme wallhanging but

here it is.  I have some idea of how I am going to quilt it but I am

feeling very stretched already.  The colors are growing on me but the

piecing process was tough as well.  All I did was cut and sew strips together-

I am sure you can tell that.  Stretching can be good, I am told.

This is a birthday present for a special young girl who loves

horses.  I am glad that it is done for her upcoming birthday.

It is funny because I find that panels are so easy to quilt.  All the

designs and patterns just sit there and tell you what to do.

However, other quilts don’t even say a word to you.  I know, I am

talking crazy here but I find it is true. Usually, when I start stitching

on a quilt, some ideas will come to me as I am quilting.  This one, in

particular,  is not saying a word.  Maybe it is the animals.

All the outlining is complete and I think that I will have to take the bull

by the horns and just start stitching.  Wish me luck.

Here are some close ups.  The hand stitching is great.  Lynn did a great job.

Doesn't this just look like a racoon in your headlights?

Rosemary Makham, a Canadian, is the designer of the pattern.

I can’t imagine the hours that went into creating this quilt.  It is gorgeous.

Do you struggle with trying to come up with quilting designs?  I am sure

that I am not the only one in this boat.

Happy designing this week.
