webbing the top

I know I have shown this as a finish, but Old Tobacco Road is taking a turn on the bed, and it just makes me smile. I love the scrappy pinwheels. I think when a quilt takes so long to finish, it is even more surprising when it is done. The scraps are a memory of a while ago. And when a quilt goes into time out, it is forgotten. And so is all the frustration that was part of the learning and the repetitiveness of the piecing. I have noticed that while I do the finishing, I actually think, I could make this quilt again in different scraps and colors. I guarantee, I was not thinking that when it went in the ufo box. Most of the time a quilt goes into time out, I am thinking about matches and lighting it on fire. Time has a way of softening the edges.

It is time to web the top of En provence. Webbing the top is a technique that Bonnie Hunter has shared on her website Quiltville, and it makes keeping the pieces in the right order easier. The seams are nesting nicely.

I see more stars...

  1. Old Tobacco Road turned out beautifully! Lots of scrappy fun in that quilt. Good luck with En Provence. I'm hoping to get mine to finished flimsy stage soon.
