I'm so happy that I went surfing in my bookmarked list! I found this Bloggers Quilt Festival - Spring 2010 that I so want to participate in! I knew immediately which quilt I wanted to exhibit!
My Spiderweb Quilt!
I stipple quilted it closer together if you know what I mean. I like the effect of it. This is only the third quilt that I have stippled myself. I got to use my brand new Bernina Aurora 440 sewing machine!
I am supposed to tell about this quilt. Here goes...
I started my blog in January of 2009. Hey, it's been over a year! I need to do a giveaway soon! Stay tuned for that one! I saw so many beautiful and fun quilts and really liked the Spiderweb. It is the first quilt I made and finished (I'm way slow) within one year. All inspired by my blog!
I learned that when paper piecing; you should take out the papers before you sew the rows together. I had a hell of a time getting all those papers out. I use regular printer paper too. I do enjoy monotony (I know!??) so sat my butt down in front of the TV and with my tweezers and a trash can next to me got to town! The cats really had fun too and actually loosened up the papers for me in places!
I learned that MATH is NOT my friend as I screwed up and it turned out half the size that I wanted. It will go on my wall in my new studio. Whenever I can get my DH to put holes in our concrete walls. Maybe after summer? I just could not be bothered to do all that work that took me one year-ish again!
I really wanted to put coffee bean fabric on the backside but as it is now going to be a wall hanging; I used a white with little blue squares.
When I come home to the States in June; I hope to find some coffee bean fabric!! When I did research on the net; I barely found anything!!
So, that is all I will write for now to give you the option to go and view more pics that I had already blogged about.
Enjoy your online exhibition; I know I will! Thanks for stopping by! Come back and stay a while. Main blog.
