You'd think sewing this together would have been easy. But of course I had to make it difficult by splitting/fanning all 168 intersections, and
Unfortunately, I can no longer stand having big lumps all over my quilts, especially so many of them! Most of these intersections look like a mangled mess, rather than cute little pinwheels they're supposed to be.
Meanwhile, now that its at least sewn together, I just had to audition the top behind the bed with the quilt its intended to go with:
Hmm. What do you think about the brown quilts against the purple walls? Will I have to re-paint? Another reason to put off finishing it.
While I had the brown star quilt out, I thought I'd snap a couple detail pix with the intent to show off the hand quilting. Too bad it didn't work so well...
Unfortunately, I don't know how to turn off the flash on my husband's camera, which washed out the shadows that would have accentuated the quilting. As it is, you can barely see it. Dang it, I need camera lessons!
Anyway, I'm very happy to have that thing off my wall and out of my sight for awhile.
PS - this is really funny.... little did I know, I accidentally took a movie of my quilt! Really, I don't know how I did that, except I guess I pressed some button to shut the flash off which unbeknownst to me, started the video recorder?!? HA ha!! Anyway, then I thought well what the heck, I'll put it the blog! Interesting, as the quilting shows up better.
Remember.. this video was a mistake!
(I really DO need camera lessons! LOL!)
