ADDING LOOPS

So far this week, this is all I have been doing. I do it while waiting.....I hate to wait....

My husband had off yesterday and so I waited on him while he ran a few errands.

We went out and then when I got home, I was waiting for my sons to get back. Did I say I hate waiting.

So each time I pulled this puppy out and would just play.



I can not begin to tell you how many bloopers there are in this quilt. Some I frogged out and then others....well....they passed the test of not looking tooo bad.

So....next is just to stitch the piano keys in the ditch and then the binding.

Today I may go to D.C with the boys or stay home and cook the one visiting his favorite foods. We will see.

Love your quilting on this one. I'm trying to figure out where you started and ended on the half motifs along the edge.

Well whatever you do, enjoy. As for the bloopers, I'm sure you are your own worse critic.

I know what you mean about waiting! I hate to wait. The quilting looks great to me. Creative way to wait.

It doesn't look bad there, Barb.

Bow-tie quilts are a favorite of mine. Yours looks great: I love the border.

Great quilting...love the row of loops!
I'm taking the quilting challenge too...time to expand my "vocabulary".
Have a great time with your boys!:)

Your quilting looks great! I practiced making some of those loops today on a scrap quilt. I doubt I'll be showing my work. Need a lot more practice!

I hate waiting too and am very happy that I can tote knitting along with me at all times :0)

Love bowties, and love the quiltwork! This is the same you showed from the back, a few days ago?

Your loops look good from here. I love loopy quilting but sometimes my loops have flat spots. Practice, practice, practice I guess.

Gene Black said...

Enjoy the time with your guys! I know it is not frequent enough.

Ah ha! Thanks for sharing this insight on how you get so much done. You definitely are more productive than I am, while waiting. I'm going to work on this. Now, I just need to figure out how I can send my DH on more errands!

Beautiful FMQ too!

Barb, this is lovely! You sure are putting your "wait" time to good use...I don't see any candidates for frogging there - it just looks great!
