That’s what Mom’s been telling me for this quilt of hers. It’s a long story but she had to remove the center of this quilt – I suggested carrying the 9 patches through the center – this is what she chose to do.
Really, what am I supposed to do with these? She said a pantograph was fine but with the high contrast in fabrics and the dogs, I was afraid it would look weird.
Some ribbon meandering and continuous curves were ok for the body and borders. But I had no idea what to do here.
I looked through some books and found something I thought would work in the book Modern Quilting Designs. It’s a little shaky but looks better than a panto would have on this one I think.
Of course it would have been easier and probably have looked better had I quilted it before turning the quilt but I didn’t want to change my thread to white and then back to the turquoise to finish up the side borders. As it was, I was quilting it with the block oriented sideways instead of straight on. Live and learn.
With luck, my phone and Internet will be back up tomorrow morning. Comcast is coming out and I’m having them update my hardware to a “wireless Internet gateway” in their words so I can do away with the old computer that is to slow to use anymore but was the host computer for my network.
