I am a mad man.

May 24, 2008

Seriously, did I ever tell you how I’m partially blind? Well, I am. So you might wonder why on earth I’m marking a really big black wholecloth. I’m a masochist, thats why! I have just the border motifs to design, it’s really coming along.

thats my corner motif which has taken me about 45 minutes to mark half of it.

it shows up a lot better in photos. I wish it showed up this well!

you can make out a little of the center motif in this pic. Phew.

Now it’s all black, i’ll quilt the motifs in black and my background quilting is in red. I’m not sure if I’m going to use a red or a black back. I have both. I wanted to do red, but I don’t want the black bobbin thread to look crappy on the back. They’ll be a lot of background quilting though (in red and white) I’m not sure what to do.

And here’s the gradation I was working on last night turquoise-chocolate.

Some of it is still wet, thats why they have that line in them

and this is a baby:

    It’s going to be stunning! What if you used the black backing and stitched your motifs in red and your fill in black? Then you’d have a nice 2 sided quilt. I can’t wait to see it finished.
