Design Wall Monday Sept 24
Today on my design wall I have got the fixed results of The Ugliest Quilt I have ever made. Back in June I showed you some blocks on my wall that I had sewn together some 10 years or more ago. Then they were put in a box. I got them out thinking This Year I Must Do Something with them. Well I know why they were in the box. It was Ugly. So with my mom' help we have saved it a little.
We found this pale green floral print on sale for $5.00/m Canadian and knew it would help. We used 6 1/2" square of it between the 16 and 4 patches. It did help some. The bad part is, this is only one out of three. We have enough to make three quilt tops like this one. We have other prints to go between the patches. We are thinking the quilts will go to charity projects our two quilt guilds do.
I have added today's post to Patchwork Times Design Wall Monday, and Manic Monday at Sew Happy Geek.
I have been dying thread again to sell. I have my thread stands refreshed again. A friend (and her friends) are starting some hand projects and need more of my thread. It is great for hand quilting or hand button hole stitch. I have used it in the bobbin of my machine for machine quilting too.
Today I am starting to quilt this quilt for a friend and customer. I am doing squares in Red thread. Should be fun. I thought with the ugly quilt I needed to show something pretty today and this is much better to look at.
