I have two tops to share today for
the Positivity Link-Up #2 hosted by
My first top, Cinnamon Latte, is already quilted
and awaiting binding. Upon completion,
hopefully this week, it will be mailed off to
Bernie for Mercyful Quilts.
I'm saving the reveal for when I have it completed
but for now, here's a sneak peek at the quilting.
I'm still working on a name for my second top.
To make it one a little more unique, I put a panel
with quote from Proverbs in the center:
"She is clothed in strength and dignity,
and she laughs without fear of the future."
"Positively Proverbs" is kind of the obvious
name but I'm still thinking on it.
After working through several ideas I settled
on an off-white solid fabric on each side to fit
the panel in with the blocks. Up close, it looked
fine but once it was in and I looked at it in a pic,
(aka, farther back) I wish I'd given it a little more
thought. I may yet go back and insert a strip of
the smaller off-white squares...but it's already
hanging on the long-arm frame. If I use a
gold quilting thread, it might put a little design
onto that solid, helping it to blend better.
This one will either be sold (proceeds from all of my
sales go to charity) or given to a church fundraiser.
