... quilting waves

quilting waves

i am loving this quilting. it's so fun, just letting the walking foot wander to create these undulating waves. so much less stress than trying to quilt the perfect straight line. i kind of want to quilt everything like this from now on.

however, i spent nearly three hours just quilting this small strip today and i haven't even finished a fifth of this quilt. did i mention this puppy is 60 x 84 inches? holy guacamole!

now, if only there were 10 times as many hours in the day--and if only my arms were made of steel--i might actually be able to finish this sometime soon.

  1. That's lovely - but holy guacamole indeed (I'm so going to try and incorporate this phrase into my daily lexicon). It'll be worth it though! Let me know if you figure out the hours in the day thing...

  3. You make some really beautiful quilts. Would you ever consider sharing the fabrics and yardage you use? The flock of triangles and red letter day are great!

  5. thanks ladies! your encouragement is just what i need to dive back into this quilting. that and some serious bicep exercises.

    michele--sure! sometimes i forget to discuss the specifics of a quilt because i get so darn excited about the end product. but i am more than happy to give some helpful stats... thanks for the suggestion!
