I love the back of the quilt. It is going to be so awesome when it is washed.
So, I have been thinking....about straight lines. With my long arm I can do pretty straight horizontal and vertical lines, but forget it with diagonal lines. I have the rulers and a throat platform to attach to my long arm and I have tried to make them straight, but for this quilt I went with organic sketchy lines around the blocks. Personally, I love how hand drawn they look. I think I will make them my signature.
There are many many quilters who have computers associated with their machines and they do beautiful...dare I say perfect work. Not me. I am very human and so is my quilting. At this time in my life, I don't have the energy or desire to learn how to use one of the fancy systems. I am very happy with my massive 21 year old machine. Maybe down the road I will have the drive to be more perfect, I will look into it then.
I did two different types of leaves in the blocks. This set is a more traditional and the one above is kinda like a cocoon.
Happy Military Spouse Day if you are one! My husband is coming to take me to lunch...so I better get a move on if I am going to hit the post office first!
