Happy Monday Everyone. I am heading into month end at work and anyone who works within accounting knows how stressful and busy a time this can be. I am having some issues figuring out how I want to quilt the Tinkerbell and have actually picked out the work I did over the weekend as I was not satisfied with it. It is now repressed, re-pinned and hanging over the banister railing waiting for me to give it another go.
I have been drawn to this one particular blog though –Fairy Face Designs – over the past month or so and now think I have found the way to quilt it. I will be sewing horizontal lines one inch apart to achieve a design very similar to her Sophie’s Dreams Quilt that is absolutely beautiful – both the fabric and stitching. Maybe I just needed to see the quilting I had in mind on a completed quilt. I can only hope mine turns out just as nice.
The weekend was not all a waste though. Aside from the normal routine of grocery shopping, house cleaning and going to the movies with the MR., I made some amazing progress on the Rail Fence for Tork and will have it completed and quilted by this weekend. I did discover however, that I cannot count! I am 6 squares short of my 48 that I counted multiple times and I swear I had the right number. I don’t really consider this a set back though. I will have them completed before bed tonight and sewn together with the final 1/4 panel. Quilting this one will be a much easier task. I have already decided to “ditch-stitch” it following the 6 inch square lines. I think this will look great.
