Animal Strings - DONE
I posted this recently, but today it's DONE. And done in time for the Linus Project deadline.
In my opinion, a LOT of quilting was needed to blend the raucous colors to some degree. I quilt on my DSM. And I had to use one color, a medium brown/tan, that still is too obvious but what else can one do with this project? The beginning quilting is always better than the end quilting since by the time one gets near the end, one is really getting tired of the job! We quilters could use a new book that helps us carry on with enthusiasm after the excitement of a new quilt begins to wane, and we get to the "I'm sick of looking at it" stage! If you have one, drop me a line.
Below is a closer shot of the topographical contour pattern. This took a LOT of quilting, and impatience DID enter the picture.
I'm trying to show the quilting with better lighting. Not sure it's successful, but again, it's DONE.
I quilted stars in the cream border with a light thread, and in the outer border, straight boxy lines, trying to follow the darker lines in the check.
