Did you know I was a high school quilting class DROPOUT???
Yes indeedy, my Mum and I took a quilting class together when I was about seventeen
but we NEVER made it to the point where we finished our quilt tops.
I have a TERRIBLE time making up my mind when it comes down to
picking fabrics for the quilt
and border fabric
and binding fabric…
so WILLY NILLY, I know, right?
Well no more, I am finished with my Turning Twenty quilt top AND
I am DETERMINED to finish my Virtual Turning Twenty Class (original post here) with Rhea at Alewives Fabric =0)
(This crazy amount of work was for classes four, five, and six!)
I also got my (very simple) back sewn up and I had to laugh at her instructions that said basically
to forget about those lovely pieced backs by Denyse Schmidt or Ashley from Film in the Fridge
that until we understand the rules we can’t break them.
Ha, ha she MUST have know that was going to be my next question.
I do ask A LOT of questions.
Off in the mail to Alewives Fabrics (here) it all went today to to be long-arm quilted by Barbara.
I am so anxious to see what design she picks to quilt it!
When it returns all pretty and quilted, all I will have to do is add my binding.
Kona cotton in Raisin (on the far right) is what I am going to use for the binding (well, I am MOSTLY sure anyways).
I REALLY am trying NOT to second guess my choices with this quilt so far,
and I figure if it doesn’t look good in my bedroom it can always become a picnic blanket, ha ha ;0)
