I’ve had a fun couple days in the sewing room. Here’s a shot of the front of a knitting tote bag I’ve just started. It uses the same pattern as the Tulip Tote (that uses wooden sewn-in handles) but I substituted the 11 1/2 inch wreath for the tulip quartet block in the center block: The quilting on this is no big deal, but this was my first attempt to divide up a space into geometric subdivisions using a straight acrylic ruler on a HDSM. I love how it has completely changed that center block! Sometimes it is really hard to get a photo that shows the quilting and I took this in the dark with only a little light creeping in from the neighboring room. You can see it a little better on the backside: See what I mean? It’s very simple yet interesting all because of those straight line divisions! I got mixed up as I was doing it and my lines aren’t even symmetric but I think it still looks ok! On a completely separate note, I finished the stitch out of my new MEA border design and I love how it came out: This flowing floral border makes me think of a fairy tale kind of garden. The problem with the flower has been resolved, as you can see below. The photo below is from before the file was revised and you can see some magenta thread poking underneath the splayed petals: And in the next photo, those errant stitches are gone! I LOVE this border! It’s very versatile because it can be contracted for use on a shorter quilt or expanded to be used on a really wide quilt! I am psyched because this weekend, I get to start 4 of these border panels for a “real quilt!”
I’m very happy with the service and the quality and i recommend your website to my friends whenever i get the chance. Pfizer viagra! Generic drugs that do so should have the same therapeutic effect and therefore the same benefits as their brand-name counterparts, but at less cost.
