I feel good! I bought a book a while back from Suzanne Earley. It's called Meandering Magic. I read her blog regularly, and she had a sale on her book, so I bought it. I'm so glad I did. I got this quilt done in one day...almost. I still have the borders to do, but the main part of the quilt is done. I really like the way it turned out. It's not great, but for a first time trying the technique I'm pretty happy. The first photo shows you the back. Yes, I used yellow thread, but that's so the front would look better.The second picture of the back shows the texture a bit better. The purple is fleece, and it wasn't too bad to quilt on. The tension was off a bit, but it works. I think once I wash it many defects will be less visible. I tried to get a picture of the top outside, but it was a bit too breezy to get a good one. This is the best one I could get. The color in the first pictures is much closer to the color of the fleece than the second one. You can see how the fleece looks against the quilt below. The colors aren't right, but I've found it very difficult to get blues and especially purples to look right.
