WIP Wednesday 10.9.13
I’ve been working on my solids-only version of Elizabeth Hartman’s Glam Garlands pattern for about a year and a half. Sigh. This quilt is teaching me patience. It’s not that anything has been problematic, but more that other projects take precedence. This quilt is for me. No deadline. So very, very slow progress.
Anyway, last week I started quilting it!
I’ve wanted to try swirls for awhile. I did some wobbly ones on the Greenscape quilt, but I practiced awhile and went for it on this one.
And I’m going to try a different FMQ design in each garland. So far I have scrolling loops in the yellow and stipple in the purple.
Wow your quilting looks fantastic! Funny how “lack of a deadline” can affect progress. I made this pattern on a strict deadline and thought it went together way quick! We need to prioritize the “for-me” quilts too. 🙂
this looks great, melanie! i can’t wait to see it on Thursday!!! woohooo. I really like that you are doing something different in the garland colors, too! i can’t wait to see the binding of choice 🙂
