First, I would like to thank everyone for the kind words of support regarding my uncle. Unfortunately he didn’t survive the car accident. There was a beautiful celebration of his life with many tears and much laughter.
Since, then I have been able to get in some quality sewing time over the Easter holiday. I wasn’t able to link up a finished quilt top in time to link up to The Sassy Quilter’s deadline. I would have liked to been able to post; I even started one with row by row progress. Instead of finishing the post, I decided it was more important to sew.
This was a quick photo between the rain showers, sorry for the poor picture!
I am scheduled to long arm quilt this on Saturday. Before then, I will need to iron my 108 inch backing and sew on the zippers for the long arm frame. Not sure how to quilt this, but I have a couple of ideas.
Option 1: Purple thread with a triangle pattern (In my dream world, it would be variegated purple thread)
Option 2: Black thread with a triangle pattern
Option 3: Black thread with a “modern” quilting pattern – depends on what is available at the long arm rental shop. I may see a pattern and decide that is the one
The Sassy’s Quilter Triangle Quilt Along allows 2 weeks to catch up or quilt and bind. Finished quilts must link up by May 5th. This might be one of those quilts that gets quilted AND bound in the same day. (That is a really rare occurrence, kind of like a blood moon!)
Stay tuned for further updates!
