PROGRESS!!!! REPORT......JAPANESE Fans-Star Quilt
Celebration!!! almost quilted.....this quilt is 36 by 45 inches
It has 9 -12 x 12 inch blocks plus 4 inch boarders top and bottom
The background is a gorgeous pink with glowing gold and blue Japanese fans
The pattern is a complicated eight point star..with complicated centers in deep purple and dramatic orange.
I have now quilted--in the ditch-- 7 of the stars....and it really looks super great.
This quilt has been in my "not-finished" drawer for at least 8-10 years....
I cannot even remember what motivated me to buy the fabric..choose the pattern..do the work.
A MYSTERY with a happy ending..
I am glad that I can quilt a 36 by 45 inch quilt on my very basic OLD (probably 1970) Singer..with 3 zig-zag stiches... ( considered super "fancy" at the time)
So despite some annoying mundane life hassles taking too much time and psychic energy...this will bring a happy contented smile today.
......and looking in the "unfinished" quilt drawer I discovered maybe the first "PUPPY" quilt....TO-DO LIST: CALL SAN QUENTIN today!! that small quilt is for sure a creative experiment that did NOT work...will a puppy care???
Now my continuing frustration is that I have not been able to arrange borrowing a camera..and learning how to use...and also work the gizmo that plugs into a computer...I AM working on it!!!
Happy Quilting--Determined Quilter
