On the Frame and Upside Down

Here's a glimpse of my batik block swap quilt.  I'm having fun quilting it using Kim Stotsenberg's Heavy Metal style.  Her blog is Sew N Sew Quilting and she has a few books for sale.  I'd love to take a class from her someday.

This is taken from under the frame looking upward.  I can't show the top until our next guild meeting when we have our Great Reveal.  But ... you can see some of the quilting and notice several thread colors in this row.  Can't wait to share a better view!

Mr. SeeingStars is on a plane heading home and we plan to go to the high school football game tonight to cheer on the band (and the team, of course).  It will be fun to enjoy another marching season here.  There's such a comforting feeling when everyone in the family is back home where we all belong.  How strange it will be when the teens leave for college.

I'm enjoying a day off from work and getting some chores done, as well as some quilting.  Hope you find lots to be thankful for today.

Enjoy your day!

  1. I love how the thread changes show on the back... it's worth all the extra work!
