I have been quilting up a storm. Pillows for my bed from orphan blocks...tried some narrow furrow quilting on these. I really love the look.
Quilted the Storm Windows quilt. I may have over quilted this one. I did random widths of horizontal and vertical lines. Some of the lines are about 5/8 of an inch apart. I do love the backing fabric and now that I've lived with it for a few days I'm warming up to it. Needs a label. Note to self...do it today or it won't get done.
I think I mentioned awhile ago that my mom and I are working on a collaborative quilt that will be raffled off to raise money for the church. I'm so happy to be working together with my mom on this project, though I know she gets a bit frustrated with my "create as you go" method. She would prefer to see the drawing, the plan, the step by step process. She is doing these beautiful redwork flowers for the quilt. I have chosen a set of fabrics with that old turkey red color and a antiquey feel. I've made 24 of these fans so far. I'm not quite sure where I'm going with this, but I feel a vision coming on. I know the feeling I want to create...that's something, right? It will be interesting to see where this one ends up.
In the process of all this quilting I seem to have messed up my shoulder. I think I might have been sitting too low relative to the machine. Suffice it to say I can't move my neck very well and I've got a knot in my shoulder that is making sewing and just about anything else painful. Does this happen to you?
