I had so much fun yesterday, it was a bit bittersweet tiding up after the party. I heard that one guest even forgot their drink me bottle, and was nearly eaten by their pet cat. The good news is everyone is safe and sound now.
I am in a bit of a pickle about the quilting for my Lone Star. I have some ideas about how I'd like it quilted but... Of course there's always a but. I was thinking I'd need to send it out to someone with a bigger throat. Yet I wonder.
What if I quilted the quilt top to bottom and did what I could in the space allotted, and then came back and instead of turning the quilt 90 degrees, instead staggered it a bit for something more like 15 or 20 degrees, quilt through some more and turn another 15 or 20 degrees my leaders are big and fat so I could pin side up near the take up and the other towards the bottom? That would give me the width of the frame to work some of the bigger/longer designs in. And it's true I'd have to be careful not to sew the extra leaders to the quilt, and yes I will likely have more starts and stops but...
Any thoughts for this rule breaking quilter? For the record this is all Sue and Dana's fault, making me think maybe I too can quilt it myself... Must still have a little bit of Alice in me.
