So with my current obsession for string quilts – I decided to play around in EQ6. I liked the first two OK but the stars didn’t really pop. I tried some red/white strings too but that looked too busy. I like the white star in the middle the best but I may still play around some before I decide which one to use. I’m not sure what happened to the reds in the first picture but I’m not going to go back and redo it – use your imagination!
Keith is out of town so I might as well spend the evening and night picking out the mess I’ve made of this quilt! Luckily the bar stool from the kitchen is the perfect height – which I found out last time I had to pick out a row of stitching. I’ve already warned Mom that I’m making a mess of the quilting on this quilt.
I met today with Sandra – the listmom from Stashbuster. She suggested we meet at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts which is only 1.25 miles from the apartment so I walked over (even though it was 8 degrees!). We got acquainted as we walked around looking at their art collections and I can’t wait to go back and spend more time there.
We lunched at Ping’s, a Chinese restaurant nearby which was great too – I even have leftovers for dinner tonight. I’ll have to take Keith there one night when he gets back into town. He’s gone again – this time for a week – to Vegas for a meeting.
I came home, got right to work, and finished up the quilting on Mom’s Block of the Month quilt – Now I just have 3 left to do for her.
I don’t do these very often but this one has me nailed.

I finished the Bright Strings top tonight – I don’t have anywhere in the apartment that I can take a good picture at night so this was the best I could do – the top is folded in half and thrown across the top of the door to my studio. I REALLY miss the lighting in my studio in Marietta. The string colors are a little overly vivid – they’re not quite that bright in person.
