pinning

Early this summer I invited you to join me
in a striped challenge.
One more week remains!!!
I'm pinning away wondering.....
How am I going to quilt this???
diagonal lines?....
stippling?......
Maybe straight lines across and down....?
Hmmm.....

I know Miri finished a lovely quilt.
Marilyn and Sarah did too.
LeeAnn said she's working on something....
How about you?
One more week of stripes.....

Then.... I think I'll join that quilt along over at

When School begins I am
DEFINITELY
going to get some quilt tops quilted!!
....I hope....:/

  2. Yipes stripes! I better get crackin.

    Your quilt looks great. I always have a hard time figuring out the quilting lines too. Denyse Schmidt told us she takes a photo and prints out several copies on paper, then draws various designs until she finds the right one. I tried that with my last one, and it worked well.

  3. I still haven't quite finished mine - the quilting is about half-way done, but we had five requests for quilts through the quilt ministry, so it's on the back burner again until those are done.... And I love that Fat Quarterly quilt along - I think we're going to use that pattern for one of the five quilts. Mainly because I can bag up some quickie kits for ten blocks or so and hand them out to my quilters to sew up and return to me to be put together for a flimsy!
