Following the Yellow Brick Road
I am finally 1/2 way done with the quilting on my Crazy Rainbow Rows quilt.
I am still wondering who invented this monster - the answer being the only crazy lady talking here - me.
It is a labor of love and what a bunch of labor it is.
I started piecing this last January and here we are 1 year later and I'm about 1/2 way done with the "quilting" portion of my project.
3 of the 6 rows are done with the stain glass edging being sewed on. I thought putting the black lace and edging on would be what constitutes the quilting of this, but I think I will probably go back and do some quilting and embroidering in the larger areas that will need some "texture" work. I started this in this last row I worked on, the yellow and I will continue onto the orange road now. However, I will likely have to go back and add some needlework to the blue and purple sections because I didn't think of this until now. Oh well...add another log on the fire, right?
Jim and I had to take a little trip to Scottsdale, Arizona this weekend to pick him up a new truck, so I didn't work on this as much as I wanted to this weekend. However, I have started the orange section and hope to inch along as always one little stitch at a time.
The trip to Arizona was beneficial. We got Jim a new 2013 (last year's model) GMC Yukon for $10,000 less than we would have had to spend here at home AND they pretty much threw in the extended 6-year warranty package. We needed to get a 2013 in order to afford the payments. It's a nice truck and I hope we get many many years out of it. Here's the new doggie wagon, vacation vehicle, and trailer puller:
I can fit a lot of material in that baby! Anyone up for a road trip, quilt shop hop? Just kidding, I probably won't be allowed to drive the new thing until he gets tired of it in like a year or so from now...then we will once again have the who's driving conversation.
Sew til then I will be the happy passenger!
