Okay, so I told you about the Dolphin quilt. Let me say here that I normally really like the quilts I make. I have a hard time parting with many of them… This one, well…. I’m just not feeling the love:
Here is the body of the quilt without it’s borders. First, I’m disappointed that the colors are not exactly (or probably even close) to the Dolphins colors. I think they should have been lighter…. I think the designs are cute, though:
I had already made up my mind to add black & grey borders. I decided on grey as the outer border – not sure I’m liking that either:
This quilt is on the frame and I will quilt it today. I would really like to do something special on this quilt, but because I really don’t like it, it probably is not going to happen. I’m at the point where I just want it done and gone! Hopefully, once quilted, it will a little more likeable!
Now this quilt I’m lovin’
Next week will be another busy week for me – no sewing (bummer).. My sister and her significant other will be here Fri. evening and leave the following Tues. He has never been to my home so, of course, I want to make a good impression, and that means all those lick and promises have to become follow-throughs. Plus, my sister has requested a family Mexican dinner and that means a day making tamales. On top of that I get the privilege of turning 60…. I can remember thinking 60 was ancient. I think I’ve changed my mind. Though there are times I do feel ancient…..
Have a great day, I’m off to the quilting room….
