You know how you can be too close to something to see it well? That can be true literally and figuratively.
Thursday I finished my new quilt top. It’s a big ‘un. Too big to see. So when I folded it up (I needed the floor space to make the back,) I felt pretty ambivalent about it. Stuff I like, stuff I don’t like…
A few minutes ago I unfurled it to load it on my long-arm frame. I literally laughed out loud. Delighted. The quilt has a name. 😀
Tomorrow I’ll start quilting. I’m using a pale grey 50 wt. So Fine thread and wool batting. The quilting pattern is a pantograph popcorn. It’s a large scale not too pointed or too round. It should disappear nicely into the colors.
