I didn’t do much quilting last night – but I did do a lot of pondering about quilting, especially thread color. And I took some photos of what’s what with the current in-progress quilt, so here they are:
the dark/light problem
part of the back
the quilted-not quilted edge from the back
Here’s a view of the whole unquilted top.
Another work week, come and gone.
I have been thinking the past few weeks that the summer is flying by and that means that the end of the year started on September 11, 2001 is not far off. Does that seem possible? On the one hand, like all huge life-events, it seems large and looming and very near. On the other hand, it seems like it must have happened a forever ago.
How is it possible that it’s almost a year ago already? Is it really possible that almost a year ago I was heading up to Brant Lake to calm my head and thoughts and came home to a changed world where the airport was closed and grief was newly defined?
Thursday already! I finished the quilting on the first side/edge of the new quilt and will start the other side tonight. Looks like I’ll have to wind another few bobbins, since I’m working on the last of the first nine I’d wound. And yes, I’ve been doing some unstitching here and there. I’ll go back tonight and see if there are any problem areas that I can find.
