For those of you who have begun to wonder if I would ever get back to traditional quilting I thought an update was in order. I have been working on the whole cloth quilt again.
I put it back in the stand last night
I almost have that section finished tonight
here are some more pictures (click to enlarge)
I have a lot more to do on this…it is the most quilting I have ever done on one quilt….about 2000 yards of thread so far. I need to be in the right mod to work on it because I need to be precise and sometimes I just don’t feel like that…sometimes I need to just be free to do whatever comes to me….that is why I did the tie dye quilt. I had no pattern, I just cut it up and made it up as I went along….there is a lot of freedom in that. Sometimes however I really enjoy the precise traditional work. It is good for me to have several projects going on at once!
