I quilted nice straight lines to give them a trail to follow.
The back feels like the deep dark woods to me.
You can still see the trail though...
It's good to have a trail that will take you home.
ps...evidently my posts aren't showing up in bloglines...i'm clueless...i use google reader. can anyone help?
Oh it's so beautiful! Is that binding Lush?? Wonderful! I use Google reader too so I'm not help with bloglines - sorry!
I have you showing up in my dashboard on blogger...but I think it's connected to google reader, even though I don't read pages through the google site. I'm ZERO help there, sorry! Love the back of the quilt by the way, that material is fabulous!
The quilt is really nice!
I love it love it love it! The front is bold yet elegant, teh back is as beautiful to look at as teh front, the quilting is simple and appropriate, and the binding fabric is one of my favorites!
This one is a beauty! Very cool and crisp colors. You put a lot of quilting on it! Wow, another winner! Love the back too. Great fabric choice!
ooo I love it!
lovely quilt you did a great job. i use google reader so can help there.
It is a beautiful quilt.
I love it! So beautiful work!
It's beautiful. I love it.
The quilt turned out gorgeous. Love the name! I don't use bloglines either, sorry no help from me either.
I love the muted tones of this quilt. Minimalist and perfect.
"not" lost in the woods, those are famous last words!
Really though Jacquie, it's stunning. I love the clean lines and contrast. And thanks for the nice straight lines to keep us on the trail!
Terrific story to go with the beautiful quilt!
I am usually drawn to color but I really like this quilt. I love the graphic feel to it and of course the great story to go along with it.
This is awesome!
simple and beautiful!!! your fabrics selection is amazing!
Very nice! The quilting is so perfect.
This quilt is gorgeous. I have never used black in a quilt before but my dad wants one with red, gray, white, and black. I'm hoping to start it soon. Your work is an inspiration!
Beautiful quilt! What do you use to mark your lines before you quilt them? I've tried lots of different markers and haven't been too thrilled with any of them...
i don't use any markers...the secret is painter's tape. i have it in widths from 1/4 inch to 3 inches. just put on one piece of tape....sew along the edge of the tape, then move the tape over and keep on going. you'll have to replace the tape every so often when it loses its stickiness....the best part is that it leaves no residue on your quilt.
AMAZING!!! I adore this!!! love the tip about the painters tape - I too was curious as to how your achieved those perfect lines.
Btw, I still can have your newest post -this one- via bloglines.
Goodness-it's gorgeous and the name suits perfectly! You have so many great things to show us!!
I don't know why, but I am drawn to the binding on this. Totally perfect! Hope the hands are holding up.
I love it! You always choose the best quilting to go with your quilts.
This is one of my favorite quilts that I Have seen in a LONG time! I absolutely LOVE it...
Oh dear I love it. I use google.com/reader
I believe Judy L uses blogline
What a great quilt! I love the slanted quilting. Your posts are showing up just fine at my house (I use google reader). Hope you saw my 'post'...
Wonderful. That woodgrain fabric is so cool.
Thanks for the masking tape tip. That definitely sounds like the way to go!
love how it turned out. and such a nice story behind it! how big is it?
Honestly, you have one of my favorite quilting design sensibilities in all the whole internet! I just love concentric circles and squares, and this is so balanced and beautiful.
It is just "STUNNING"!!!
what a nice quilt! i think bloglines hiccups every so often. and all you can do is wait it out. or else persuade everyone else to use google reader. :) i am a recent convert to google reader and after the initial adjustment, i have to say it's far superior.
Love your quilt it is beautiful.
Greetings Jacquie! Penny brought me over on the e-trail to meet you! Speechless! Thank you for the inspiration and encouragement you lend as you share your many talents and life!
Stunning. Really stunning. Who else could make black, white and gray so interesting - just Jacquie!
Simply beautiful. I would expect nothing less from you. Well done, my friend!
Love your quilt. I did the painters tape for straight lines on a quilt top - great tip. Hope your hands are better.
love your quilt!
I had a problem with my feed and bloglines last year after I moved my blog from Yahoo web hosting to my new host. In my case it was related to some type of a 'stuck' connection to the old files which I had left in place until I was sure the move had been successful. After I deleted the files on Yahoo it started working again. Of course, all my readers reported every feed reader was working except for Bloglines.
I did a lot of research at the time and could find no way to actually contact Bloglines, no forum, no support phone number. I did send quite a few e-mails via their contact form asking them to reset my feed, advice I came across on a few different blog searches on the topic. Seemed like a black hole.
Pretty amazing that a third-party service has that kind of control over our content! I switched to Google Reader and haven't looked back, it's probably better that I don't know when Bloglines isn't picking up my feed :)
I absolutely love the colours and the story behind the quilt!
Simply stunning Jacquie! Love the colours and fabric - such a modern piece.
Graphically gorgeous quilt! Love those fabrics and how you have put it together!
Oh I just love your quilt and the name of it also. It is gorgeous.
You did a wonderful job on your quilt and the straight lines were the perfect quilting pattern to use as they really highlight the quilt. Thank you for your tip in using painter's tape for achieving the straight lines.
Your quilts and your quilting are beautiful, and somehow they appear calming to me. I don't make modern qlts, tho I do liberated patchwork ala Gwen Marston, yet I love your interpretation of 'modern'.
I've just subscribed to your blog with google reader and will enjoy all your posts and quilts.
this is awesome...love the color combo! :)
Really, really beautiful! I love the fabric you chose as backing.
Yours is not the only one not showing up in Bloglines. Several of my regular "reads" are MIA.
I love the colors in this quilt and the graphic design. Is that a camouflage fabric for the binding?
beautiful! You have truly mastered the diagonal parallel lines.
wow, great work, very inspiring. I have been working on some table clothes, but stuck in how to finish them.
I just found your site via sew mama sew...and can i just say that you are fabulous!
I am envy your quilt making ability...I have such a hard time finishing a quilt project...but i love admiring yours!!!
Beautiful! I love seeing the wood grain print in use :)
Your quilting on this one is just grand, Jacquie!!! I love love love it! And I love too, that you were inspired by someone else's story to make your own quilt. Very cool. ;-)
love your blog,
just wondering, do you have a large photo of the quilt that you have spotlighted on your icon for the "project improv"?
Or instructions for it?
The one with the houses.
Looks like fun and would like to try it.
