.....the quilting on the orchestra quilt, that is. It's been a long, hard week, but the binding, sleeve and label should be gravy from this point. I'll post a picture once it's bound. I must say - this quilt has challenged me and my skills on so many different levels. I've been quilting on "autopilot" for a long time and haven't taken the time really stretch. I know I've complained about it a lot here, but I am proud of myself.
So, since there's not a picture of that quilt, how about a picture of this one?
Debbie flopped this quilt top on my desk this week. My first questions was "Is this a present for ME?". After a good laugh and a resounding "NO!", I was invited to look at it a little bit closer.
A client of Debbie's dropped this off for her to baste. It was hand pieced by her grandmother back in th 50's or 60's. The client is (who has NEVER hand-quilted) plans to hand quilt this top.
The kicker? The individual pieces are a 1/2" finished.
