It Was Bound To Happen
Well I'm right on target it would seem.
With a little over a month left of being 32, my latest creation is this:
A real honest to god quilt! Just like Mom would make! (Although hers would be better...).
Ok, well it's like a wall hanging/baby sized quilt.
Remember that jelly roll I teased about?
This is what it became.
Partially inspired by the Amish quilts my mom used to make back in the day and knottygnome's wonky-quilt obsession (I tried to make this wonky, but I think it looks more "sloppy chic" than wonky), I decided to use the jelly roll to make my take on what I believe is called an "Amish Roman Shade" pattern.
In keeping with the Amish tradition of intentionally effing up one piece of the quilt (because they believe only God can make perfect things--or at least that's the word on the street as to why they do this) I quilted one black triangle in white thread.
Um, yeah, totally intentional *cough.*
Overall I am HIGHLY impressed with Toni Janome and her ability to quilt. She went through the layers like a hot knife through butter. I am very satisfied with my purchase of a DC3050. I wanted a machine that could sew clothing and quilts with no problems--and she does.
The Beast would have had a seizure as soon as I tried to stitch the first stitch on this quilt.
I had to wash this quilt after I was done with it to, for reasons to be discussed later. Normally I'm not into the crinkly-quilted look for decorative quilts--but I'm a convert now!
Two thumbs up!
