I am not a person to leave things to the last minute. I am that jerk you went to school with who finished her report 3 days early “just in case” a dog might chew it up at the last minute! This is the 2nd time in my life where I’ve entered a quilt into a quilt show that wasn’t already completed and now I am paying for it BIG TIME! I am racing against the clock to get the quilting done by Mon am but I also need to bind it, label it, and get the dang hanging sleeve added!
The outermost border has a lot of ruler work followed by fill in work. Here’s a section of empty ruler work:
The lowest tier is from the Turrets 2 ruler. The upper tier is from the Turrets 1 ruler, and then the crescents are from 2 arc rulers (PTD 8 and 12 arcs.) You can see that I am so pressed for time that I am “settling” for sub-par work on my part, but that’s the price I must pay for being so late in getting this done. In this next shot, you can see what the turrets 1 section looks like filled in:
…and here’s a bit more fill in inside the Turrets 2 section:
I have to say that filling these in with featherettes is pretty fun. I am seeing featherettes everywhere lately! This next shot shows both the Turrets 1 and Turrets 2 sections filled in:
I don’t actually like the look of these but it’s too late to rip out and move to something else. I am hoping there is time to hyperquilt them as I think that might make them a bit more enticing.
