And it’s done!

January 10, 2009

Well, mostly done,  but it’s done enough for me to feel good about submitting it to MQX.

I still have to finish hand stiching down the binding, applying crystals to the back, and block it, but that’s not that much to do with a lot of time to do it. Yay.





Not bad if I do say so myself. My tension isn’t as great as it could be which isn’t my fault per se. The bottom border was REALLY full so it has some issues which should come out in blocking. All in all I’d call this a success.

    As I said before Adam, this is just fabulous! Terrific work and I’m glad you’re going to compete with it.

    Looking forward to seeing what you do next.

    That turned out GREAT! I love the depth of the colors. Adam, if it isn’t too much to ask… walk us through the steps you will take to block it. I haven’t officially done that yet and I’d love to have a window into how you tackle the job.

    It’s just beautiful Adam. Your fill work is beyond exceptional.

    By the way, go to and put you name in to win the quilting machine. It couldn’t hurt.

    OMG you have the most talented hands of any man I’ve ever seen and their not even touching me but I feel all inappropriate any way. God I love this can’t wait to see it after the finishing touches can’t see how you can possibly go above this perfection but if anyone can it’s you.
