I had a few goals for the year. One was to get more quilts made.
I am being inspired by many wonderful quilters.
One has a monthly challenge. This months challenge is the color Purple.
Here's what I am working on . . .
This is a quilt for my daughter. I am really hoping to finish by Valentines Day.
This quilt has been a huge challenge for me. First it almost covers my King Size bed.
I am quilting it on a standard home machine. My Bernina decided to get sick so I was using a backup Singer. Then it got sick.
The quilt is basically finished with binding but I really want to add a little more quilting to it in the purple areas.
Another challenge. I chose this fabric because it is what I had and I needed something between the pieced sections. It was a bad choice. No let me change that a really, really bad choice. There is something about this fabric. It has some sort of a texture...that really isn't the word it is like a film on it.
Kind of like wax. It had a waxy feel. So I washed it and that seemed to help. It pieced ok. But then when I started quilting those sections I ran into trouble again! I really think that is what happened to the machine.
Really weird. I have never had something like this happen before.
This quilt although it has provided many, many challenges for me is a work of love.
I am calling it Bloom. My daughter's divorce (hopefully) will be finalizing on the 26th. It has been a long road for her and our grandson.
I am so proud and amazed at her spirit and her faith in God.
She has bloomed so much over the last year and a half.
Now that this quilt is finished I was thinking I needed a challenge and an inspiration.
Not like I don't have a bunch of WIP's going along but something new is always good. Right.
So here's my plan at least the fabric choice . . .
I pulled out a few Purples (the one with the hearts is really purple don't know why it looks blue here.)
Now what pattern should I use. Any ideas?
