It's Done! Hurray!

The red, black and white quilt is DONE! I finished stitching down the binding at the Contemporary Quilt and Fiber Arts Alliance meeting last night. Now to get the swim team to sign it, and give it to the coach. When my husband saw it last night he said, "I didn't know you loved Coach Ben this much." I think that was meant as a compliment. Here it is in all its glory. I especially love the red binding. I had fun quilting the spirals using black and white varigated thread. I love varigated thread.


Last night we had guild at Fiber on a Whim. I LOVE that store and will someday spend money there. It is just that after the meeting, I was so tired that I was afraid to try to shop. However, once school starts next week, I will be making a trip there for some Angelina fibers and some Misty Fuse. That Misty Fuse stuff is so cool. The meeting last night was about how to use all these cool products such as Misty Fuse and Angelina Fibers. I thought the Angelina would be great for mermaid hair...

Yeah, that Angelina fiber is pretty cool! (I never heard of the other stuff...)

Pretty quilt. That color combo (In my world both black and white are colors as are the scales of gray in between) is so effective. And the quilt definately feels masculine. :o)

You're right about the red binding--it's perfect!

Oh, look at you! What a great quilt you've turned out! Coach will be bowled over, I'm sure. It's smashing. I love it! Applause applause!

You're smart to wait until you're not so tired. The Angelina fibers will still be there. But Misty Fuse? What's that? Uh-oh, danger ahead...

Fab-o Quilt! very masculine and dramatic!

I talked to Wes about oil pictures or pamphlets and he said everyone has it in his head. What I do see of his magazines would put anyone to sleep--full of charts and mumbo jumbo.

It's a great quilt! I love the contrast of black, white and red. The quilting really does look like you had a lot of fun. I hope my guild will have a demo on ways to use Angelina fibers.

Very nice Jules. It's one of my favorite color combinations. I wanted to decorate my whole house in those colors when I first married 34 years ago. It never happened, but I still like those colors together.

You'll have to tell us about the Misty Fuse. What are it's advantages? How does it compare to other fusibles? Etc.
