WIP Wednesday: Glad to Have Some Progress

Leave a comment

I’ve made good progress this week on the Gray and Red Zig Zag quilt.  It’s about 3/4 quilted and coming along well.  I wasn’t very happy with the quality of the straight lines I free-motion quilted.  They seemed fine at the time, but in the light of morning looked pretty flawed.  I wonder if it had anything to do with watching a video while I quilted?  I never do that, usually just listen to a podcast.  Maybe I need all my concentration on my quilting.  I picked out the worst ones, and for the rest I’ve enlisted the aid of friends in chanting, “They will crinkle up in the wash.”  That is my plan.  Since then I’ve added free-motion feathers, which I find much more fun and forgiving.

Also, I’ve been making some blocks to send to Vesuviusmama for quilts for Sandy survivors.  Thank you to Jaye, the Artquiltmaker,  for sharing this link.

There are several people/groups collecting finished quilts for the east coast, but I plan to send at least one to Luana Rubin’s  (eQuilter.com) initiative.  They’re working through Timeless Treasures to collect and distribute them.

A good rest of week to you all.
