This weekend I finally finished quilting all those schoolhouses. Boy am I happy about that!
Those houses have been a challenge. It's not like they are fancy or anything, just difficult to quilt. They are mostly stitched-in-the-ditch, except for windows and roof tile. But I ended up doing it all free-motion as it was easier than moving the 103 x 96 quilt with every angle.
Unfortunately, in some places it looks as though I was, DWQ, drunk will quilting.
The quilt would pull and fall off the edges of the table at inconvenient times. I ripped out some many stitches, I could have made a human sized nest from the threads!
And don't get me started about my borders!
At some point I removed the 10 inch border because it was wavy. Well after correcting the border, I discovered that it was the white 2 inch sashing that was wavy. I mean wavy like a poodle skirt! BUT, I couldn't find any more of that fabric, so I had to make do. Just don't tell anyone, OK, it'll be our secret.
So I started quilting that 10 inch border and guess what? It is going way faster than those houses!
I hope (fingers crossed) that I get it finished this Thursday.
Apparently, feathers are much faster than stitching-in-the-ditch.
But are there too many feathers?
Take care, Brandie
