Completed! I had such fun with this quilt every step of the way. I learned a lot when piecing the curves and points, and how to make the quilt float. I am usually more subtle with the quilting thread but I went with the purple this time and just had fun!
Speaking of fun, I was reading an article about over-dyeing black and white fabric which made me think of this black and white t-shirt I had but rarely wore.
I dug it out and soaked it then rung it out and hung it in the bathtub.
Out with the t-shirt dyes and just let the colors drip down. I squirted the top first, then the middle and the bottom last so the colors could drip and blend. It will be worn a lot more now!
I needed to card up some more wool for today's spin.
It is such a relaxing job to tease open the washed wool and feed it through the carder.
I always card my batts three times-each time peeling the batt into three sections to run it through the carder again and again. The third time you really see a difference and it removes more debris and shorter pieces from the final batt.
I have a two ounce batt to spin today and one for tomorrow.
But I interrupt this puttering to play with these weekend visitors!
Ella and I enjoyed making some brownies-this girl loves her chocolate!
