Panel One - Quilted

While I was quilting the first panel on this quilt, I kept thinking "Have I lost my quilting mojo?"  I didn't let it stop me.  I kept quilting in spurts until it was quilted.  Monday morning, I finished the last small area that needed quilting.  After that set up my big folding table (in the kitchen, which is the only area big enough for it) and trimmed the panel.  The front looks pretty nice. 

I had to do the photo in two sections since it was cold and sn.....y outside. (in my opinion that "s" word is a four letter word!)   

Then I flipped it over - the small bit of light shining in from the window showed up the textures of the quilting.  I GASPED.  Wow!  How do I feel about that?  Well see for yourself and then I will tell you. 

How did I feel???
I felt like a quilting ROCK STAR.  That is how I felt. 
The simple truth is there are a lot of small imperfections, places where I "wobbled"
But Like a Weeble, I didn't fall down.  I kept going.  
There are curvy lines, straight lines, zigzags, and swirls.  
I did whatever felt fun at the time. And you know what?  
It all blends together into something I am kinda proud of. 

I was originally going to make the backing of the center panel a 
different fabric/color to add some interest to the back. 
But, now I say "Why, just that color with all the quilting will
look plenty interesting if that side is face up. 

And now.....two more panels to quilt.  
It will take me ---well, as long as it takes. 
And I am fine with that. 

Until Next Time,  
Stay Creative

Weeble wobble but when a quilt is washed, no one is the wiser. It looks fab and yes, it takes as long as it takes and that is ok. Happy New Year... and sorry that the 4 letter word visited you. We have had less than the some of the south so far this winter. So odd.
