|My Borgasmord is half quilted now, if you can see, it's pretty much right down the middle. I know that pretty quilting is much 'prettier', but I couldn't help but think as I was quilting that even mediocre meandering, which is my specialty, I think I may apply for a copyright, can be rather like magic to the basted quilt. The raw materials are starting to disappear and it is becoming a 'Quilt'. I might give in and send mine out to an expert longarmer if money were no object, but I'm rather glad that I do my own from start to finish as it it fun to see the transformation (plus, I'd have to do many fewer if I sent them out). Anyway, my Juki is too noisy to watch TV or even to listen to a CD while I quilt, so I was back to thinking this morning, you are up to date on my philosophy of the day. |
PS I didn't mean to say that meandering is mediocre, just my non-artistic version of it. Mine isn't all pretty and even, I have pointies and usually lots of crossed threads.
