After I brought my sewing machine back from servicing at a quilt shop, I
started this whole cloth in white during one of my QU classes. Everything
was going along fine until I noticed some grey streaking. Unfortunately,
the 'technician' put the wrong oil/lubricant into the machine which caused
the streaking. I took it back to the shop for them to fix their damage.
But, I was too far along to toss the quilt, so I improvised and changed to a
variegated thread. I initially titled the quilt, "I washed it!", from a
cartoon I saw in which a lion came upon his friends with a humidly
wild-looking mane. That was his explanation for the weird look.
The quilt is 19" square, on white with YLI silk and variegated thread, Hello
Kitty border, and crystals on her eyes that caught the light.
