I think I'm almost beyond the panic phase of preparing for the AQS show in October. I also know that if I do future shows they will not be nearly as stressful as the first one. For one thing I won't have to dye ALL of the fabric like I'm doing this time and I will generally know what I'm doing. But this week is a big turning point. After I process the fabric this week I will have all of the Color Wheel fabrics done.....that's about 240 yards alone. Gradients are almost done and I only need 2 more Stash Pack sets. Then I'll have some Shades Packs, Shibori and Crystals and I have toe whole month of September to do all that. No problem!
All of this is to say that I don't have a ton of time for myself so I needed to search out a quilt top that could be quilted with an all-over pattern and I settled on my Stars At Sea quilt. This is a good one because it's specifically made to be a display quilt in the booth so it's got to be done by October.
I had grand plans to do some fun, sort of fancy, quilting on this but I can't do that kind of quilting yet and I decided that a pantograph will be good enough.
This is the one I settled on and I have 1 row done already. I hope to get it quilted by the weekend and get the binding started. I would love to have one finish for July!
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
