A very mellow day…

Today was a lovely mellow day consisting of varied quilting activities.  I cut and sewed the binding, finally, onto the Swedish Quilt. Not terribly exciting, but reaching the end for this quilt, which will now  go into my recently vacated guest room. IMG_3306 IMG_3261I will soon start working on a customer’s memory quilt.  Today I pre-washed the accent fabrics so they will wash uniformly with the many times washed shirts. IMG_3308For some reason the accent fabric photographed as if black and white…although they are, there are some beautiful grays.  I won’t show the shirts because the customer is having the quilt made as a surprise.

Here’s an initial glance at my autumn jelly roll quilting.  I must be insane the way I pick a light back with dark thread, but I like to see my stitches…on my quilts.  How else does one improve?IMG_3309 IMG_3311 IMG_3314 I know I shouldn’t upload imperfect pictures of my quilts, but I can’t help myself.  I still have many threads to bury and, of course, this seriously needs delinting.  Besides, I am always dissatisfied with something about my work, and that is unlikely to change, because that is just how I think about things.  I can always improve upon whatever I do.   I figure as long as I’m having fun, what does it matter?

Perfection can wait.  Happy Quilting.

    Of course we are all dissatisfied with what we have completed! I think if I ever make a ‘perfect’ quilt, I will quit!
