Although I am loving this quilt – I am really really REALLY REALLY getting sick of these frickin’ flowers. I think I’m maxed out. I have 2 more blocks to go – one more border section – and then this puppy can be put to bed. The next 2 blocks won’t be released until August so hopefully by then I’ll be enthused to dive back into it.
I’m starting to think about how to quilt it. I had thought to keep it in 3 sections and free motion quilt it myself. I’ve also kicked around the idea of taking it back to the USA with me next time and having K2 quilt it. My third thought is to do utility/big stitch quilting on it (which was my original idea). Who knows…….
I also think I’m maxing out on following others’ patterns. I’m very close to doing my own thing. I think doing the fractured reality series and my Klimt quilt has given me the courage to play. I’m thinking to take that courage to my embroidery work and do some free form embroidery on my painted/rusted pieces. We’ll see where it takes me!
