Well I'm pretty darn proud of myself - I finished my second quilt this year! For the past few years It seems I've been accumulating quilt tops but procrastinating on the quilting. I've decided to just bite the bullet and finish them because as they say, "it's not a quilt till it's quilted." At first I wasn't very happy with the quilt, the circles got lost in the background too much but after I finished the quilting (a diamond grid in the circles and a close stipple in the background) they popped. Much happier with it now.
This quilt was inspired by Elisa Wilson's book Crazy Curves. I started it 4 years ago as a wedding gift for my sister. Needless to say I did not get it done on time and after meeting the guy am glad I didn't. Without getting into gorey details, the marriage went bad. She is now getting married again, this time to a great guy and I'm wondering whether or not it's bad karma to give it to her now. I'll have to think about it.
