I keep staring at that dumb Pepperdish table topper sitting on the rack waiting patiently to have something done with it. I really, really, really want to quilt this on Mike (Temps new name since he's now actually staying with me instead of going back to Gall Sewing). However, I think the quilt is a little too big for me to wrestle around with on my sewing desk.
I spoke to Dale last week about the quilting plan the designer published and it seems pretty intense; and Dale wholeheartedly agreed it's over the top. Too much on too little of a "palette".
Okay, I just brought the top out again onto my pressing table and I think if I mark it as I go, and modify some of the quilting areas, and, and, and...
I can probably give this a go on Mike. I think I can, I think I can! What do I have to lose? The quilt police won't come in here and arrest me, right? If it turns out too poopy I won't put it into the quilt show in March, right? I'll just let the guild members give it a cursory glance and not let them look at the quilting if it turns out crappy. I'm going to go for it on Mike. I just wish I had some 505 to baste the layers because all this pin basting will take all morning.
