loose ends


thank you those who commented on my last post and indulged with me in some dreaming...

above is a quilt i am just finishing up. pieced it some time ago. the colors are inspired by the royal tenenbaums movie. i decided to machine quilt it even though my machine's tension is screwy. it's a bit bunchy, but all of the sudden i just wanted to get it done.

i'm about halfway done handquilting this one. i have 2 more quilt ideas brewing, but i'm thinking maybe i should finish this quilt too while i'm in this finishing mood. it's been sitting in the cupboard for over a year.

Wow, that is such a beautiful quilt.The colors and combinations of the squares are very, very lovely. I love the white bands going through. That is so great that you are on a finishing quilt binge. This is my favorite one of the three.

Verkligen fint lapptäcke, har sett flera andra på flick som är helt underbara också! Har just suttit och beundrat dina tavlor av små tygbitar som jag hittade på etsy! Och nu när jag besökte din blogg så läste jag att du är svensk så jag skriver på svenska så jag inte behöver begränsa mig i ordvalet. Annars kunde jag bara säga "they are really, really nice" (tänk dig det med svenskt uttal så får du ett gott skratt). Jag tycker om din ide och din komposition, kompositionen är ganska viktig i sådana sammanhang!
Nu ska jag gå och nämna dig i min blogg! Tack!
