This meant it was time to quit right away, and get breakfast going ((pancakes and eggs! YUM!)) and deal with the issue later.
It wasn’t hard to fix…it’s just that I have an evil seam ripper that loves to catch not only the quilting thread, but threads of the fabric too – and you know what it is like to try so hard to catch the sewing thread ONLY – and not the fabric…argh!
It didn’t take long, and I had that border back flat where it belonged and continued to finish that web on the far right and advance to the next row!
Here we are on the machine….can you see the basement overflow stuffed at the end of my studio room? It’s getting better – at least I keep telling myself ---things always get WORSE before they get better. The carpet laying in the other side of the basement is almost completed. We have baseboards to do next, and then setting up shelves, and then things can start to be moved back to the “other side” where they belong!
In between everything else, I’m quilting!
Here is the Halloween block that inspired my idea for spider web quilting!
For those asking, this is a pantograph pattern called “Entangled” by Willow Leaf Studio. I love how it is quilting up!
Close up of the right side border!
How many old fabrics can you see in here that have come through your own stash?? That light blue at the bottom left went back to my early 1990s bunny making days! Such a sweet print. The brown bow tie at the bottom edge is a 1960s pring – fabric for all the decades of my life in here!
It’s the “doublemint twins!” :cD Over 700 bow ties and they still wound up together! No matter how hard I try to keep things apart--- sometimes like blocks just gravitate towards each other--- Those 1970s sure gave us some vibrant greens!
And so the adventure continues here in Quiltville. A brown binding has been chosen. A nap is on the agenda ----
How is your afternoon going??
