Quilt/Stash Project-2020--Determined Quilter
Saturday, January 16,2010...Year 2--Week 23--Blog 35--Day155 of 4,014
CELEBRATE!!! CELEBRATE!!! The first quilt of the new year--2010 is COMPLETED!!!
...AND it IS a WINNER!!!!
YES!!! GLOWING GOLD...SHIMMERING GOLD...Japanese fan background fabric...and the whole cloth backing ( deep purple with glowing- shimmering silver flower/leaf pattern)and gold orange/red glowing/shimmering gold binding --with complex eight point stars of deep orange and deep purple.
A forshadowing this Quilt/Stash-2020 Project....I did use all but a few scraps of fabric from ????? well I cannot remember the original quilts...from maybe 10 years ago...but/and the orage and puruple star fabrics are now completly gone.
What I learned..
It is fun and exciting to finished these quilts...
That I AM a good and create super good original quilts..
That ..yes!!! I can use up scraps and stash in rewarding, interesting, creative ways..
That some quilts will require new fabric to complete.....
...and that it may be necessary to have professional quilting on some of the larger quilts because my old Singer sewing machine just does not have the capacity to handle "big" quilts; and MY quilting skills are limited..
Already a couple of "new" unfiished tops are SHOUTING: TAKE ME..TAKE ME...
Lots of rain/st0rms predicted for next week...so maybe opportunity to quilt..quilt..quilt..
THIS IS A HAPPY PROJECT!! WITH VERY SATISFYING SUCCESS.
