I did finish the quilting on one of my baby quilts. I need to bind it now. But I will declare the fabric this day and declare the binding during the week. I have the need to declare something! LOL
I think I still have some of that stripe to make for that binding.
And I also made my offering for the Fiber Group this week. The theme there is Movement. I had all these great and wonderful ideas, but I tried to poke my eye out and had the house in turmoil from the tile, so they didn't get done.
True story. I was sitting in my really messy quilting room, trying to thing of how to depict motion in a quilt and the box of zippers fell off the shelf on to my head.
Well, zippers move, don't they?
I used four of the zippers on a duck type of material. It was wonderful to work with even though it was heavier than the usual quilting cotton I work with on everything else. I don't know where i got this even. It was just there on the shelf.
I wanted the zippers to open and reveal something and I knew it had to be colorful. I dug through my Orphan Block Box and came up with an oversized block I made about 6 or 7 years ago. Don't remember why I made just one, but I remember making it! I loved the colors but didn't' have any more to make the rest of the quilt. It was just a big basic star.
So that lives as the middle layer of the piece. You can see it in sections through the open zippers!
Different. I like it. And it moves! I went for literal this time.
So my stash report went the right way for a change! Down!
