After meeting with my wonderfully inspirational new friends, who gave me input and suggestions for my new project, I was really excited to get back to working on it.
After a little head-scratching about the logistics of what I wanted to do, I made some decisions, and started laying it all out. I put it on a piece of thin batting over heavy Pellon, spot-gluing it together.
I went against the 'rule' of starting the quilting in the middle and started on the edges, so I wouldn't have too much in the keyhole. I was worried the whole thing would fall apart before I got it stitched down!
As you can see, I added a yellow border. I tried purple, but the yellow was definitely better. My group had suggested just leaving it uneven. But, being so (I'm not sure of which word to use here!) rigid, traditional, precise, stuck-in-a-rut, I thought it looked really good 'squared-up'.
I like it. But, I don't know where to go from here. When is my group meeting up again anyway?
