Finish #2:The Beast

     There is something rewarding about just pushing through and making it work even though you don't like the initial design. I pushed even though the colors were not making me happy.The initial design was kind of cheesy. Well really just bad. In the end , I just needed to work through it and do it. I didn't like wasting my hand dyed fabrics.

                                                            L Series # 3 : The Beast
                                                                     21 x 28    

 
Hand dyed fabrics, machine stitched with yellow and blue cotton threads.


I was having difficulty with my bobbin thread tension at first so I see two lines I might re-do.

Quilt # 2 done and three is being basted today.( I finished a doll quilt too this weekend for the Santa Claus girls but that wasn't on the list!) My son calculated I could only work on each top for five days to finish it -if I want to complete all 7 by the end of the year.


Be creative, my friends!

 Giveaway: Post on last Friday's post if you want to win the scissors and thread. I will pick tomorrow.

  1. I like the overall design; the way it runs off the edges. Keep going, you're doing great!

  4. those colors are wonderful! congrats for pushing through. i agree with you on that...usually the piece itself that gets pushed through with isn't what i end up loving as much as what i learned that i can use for the next one. :)

  5. Thanks everyone. My motto of the week-just do it. Do the work! It definitely is what you learn by doing the piece.
