Day 10 of my Intuition Quilt posts came and went in silence last year; I don’t even remember what I was supposedly documenting through the Day 10 pictures which I found stored on my computer. Anyhow, I do recall how I wanted to quilt the top almost a year ago; that is I didn’t really want to quilt it at all as I loved the crisp lines of the fabrics as they were, but since it’s not a quilt until it’s quilted, I had a firm idea how it would be.
Three colours of variegated thread were purchased back in March as I couldn’t make up my mind in the store. And of course I needed three spools of each of them just in case the quilt would stretch to king size during the process or something. I would have been surprised, but prepared. I should add I rarely buy thread for specific projects any more, but use the ones that I already have. Seriously, I’ve got enough.
Looking at the top with fresh eyes I have decided to use all three of them, starting with the brownish on the bottom border.
Marking the quilt design wasn’t much of a job.
which will be spending most of their time up here
and a few seconds down here every now and then.
It has been a long time since I have been this much excited about the quilting itself. I started this project on January 10th 2011, so it’s about time it got finished I’d say.
