Do you remember when I dipped my toe in the quilting pond about 18 months ago? I took a class with my knitting group. When we went to check out the store and the class, I was attracted to the Dr. Seuss quilt and fabric display at the store and quickly bought enough to make three quilts (even though I didn't know it at the time).
I used Dr. Seuss Minky fabric for the back - so what's not to like? It's so soft and furry. Secundogeniture felt this and asked "Why don't all quilts have this fabric?" Good question son. Good question.
I quilted the main section of the quilt with nearly straight vertical lines. It gave it an interesting texture. I didn't worry about making them perfectly straight (maybe I should have?) - but it works. On the border, I did free-motion quilting and had fun zig zagging around the blue puffballs. I had so much fun, I was surprised when I had done all the blue balls and was back at the very beginning.
I was even more surprised when I heard someone coming downstairs only to discover it was Secundogeniture.
"Did you get out of school early today?"
"No, Mom. It's a normal day."
"What time is it?"
Oops! I had been quilting and lost in the rhythm for more than four hours. My how time flies when you're having fun.
But I'm glad I got lost in the mojo. I finished the quilt that took me 18 months... just in time for our weekend guests. Nothing like a deadline to get a project finished.
