Valentine Sugar Pop Quilt Progress

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

  

This week I pieced the 42 squares together.  Overall, it was a very satisfying feeling.  But so tricky-even though this pattern was labeled "For the confident beginner."  I read that this week and it made me laugh.  I'm way too confident for a beginner, and my corners show it.  




I plan to have someone local quilt it with a long arm machine.  This is me being realistic.
When I actually "quilt" something, I'll start with a potholder, I think.  

Look at that corner (the one on the right side).  The quilters are gonna laugh, aren't they?



Anyone have any experience with quilting services?  Any advice?

You are great beginner quilter. I can't even tell what you are talking about in that picture. Mostly, we see our OWN mistakes, not others. I once read somewhere that if you can't see the flaw on a galloping horse, then it's okay. Also, the amish leave a flaw in each quilt to remind them to remain humble. So I just tell myself that I make humble quilts. :) You are doing great. Keep up the good work!!!

This looks fantastic!!! And what about the corner? Don't even notice it. Thanks for integrating the cuties into the pic.

Are you kidding?? SO INSPIRING! It makes me wanna make something....even though every time I get about 5 minutes in and can't wait to be finished ;)

Christina said...

Ah but the corners show that it was homemade. I love this quilt. You did a great job!

I like what Put Your Foot Down said. I will try to remember that the next time I'm ready to rip back a whole lotta knitting because of one tiny mistake.

Catie said...

Love it! I couldn't see the mistake either. :) The fabrics are wonderful!

I love it! You come by the corners honestly! Your-great-grandma C's handiwork always had a stitch missing....even that intricate crocheted tablecloth she made for your Grandma C was missing a whole corner. It just makes us smile and recognize what a labor of love the entire project was! Someday in glory we'll be able to work it all perfectly!
