This Quilts Of Valor quilt top patiently waited almost 3 weeks before I've started to quilt it. Once the plan was made, I realized I was too intimidated to start.
I hope I'm not the only one with ambitions that exceed my confidence level.
I can hear Karen McTavish telling me to do the hardest thing. Yet she keeps getting interrupted by my inner self screaming, "What were you thinking?"
|First Row a little more to the right|
I haven't erased the chalk marks around the stars yet. Guess that will give me something to do once I get ready to inspect and roll back to the start.
|First row - center|
|2nd row - starting at the left edge again|
This one is a combination of ruler work, chalking design elements and free motion.
|2nd row - a little more to the left|
|2nd row - center|
|2nd row - right portion|
I hope to have a little more progress tomorrow to share with you. The back will be so neat to see once it's all done. I'm hoping the diagonal lines will make the back look like a totally different quilt. Have I mentioned that there will be eagles quilted in the upcoming rows? What was I thinking?
There are lots of starts and stops with this quilting. I'm practicing tying and burying my threads with hopes that they'll look better on the back side.
I have a recipient in mind for this Quilt of Valor. Can't wait to present it to him!
Enjoy your day!
