Messy Quilted Community


If I wanted MESSY quilting, that is certainly what I got. The photo doesn't even do justice to the messiness! I lost track of the number of times that I sewed down my presser foot or got tangled among the loose threads. Add in, shredded threads, skipped stitches and off tension. I think any traditional quilter would immediately throw this in the trash or maybe even the burn pile.
I'm still thinking about what I can do with this quilt. Maybe it needs some bandages and patches. And perhaps a big tear right down the middle. I'll have to see what else I can come up with.

The quilting really changes the character of this. It still has that messy/neat contrast though. Nice experimenting.

Daren and Ginny love this piece. It's so artistic and etherial. We needed the color boost today as we dyed indigo.
Keep stitching.
