"Curiouser and curiouser" is finished


"Curiouser and curiouser" is finished.  I finished hand quilting it Tuesday night and put the binding and rod pocket on yesterday.  The photo above shows a detail of the quilting on the final border.  I didn't mark anything--just did roughly parallel lines in the body of the quilt and then followed the printed design of the final border.  This is my favorite kind of quilting.  This quilt and "Mérida Remix" will be entered in the Piedmont Quilters Guild Show in October.  More on that when it's closer to the show.

Our first teachers' meeting is tomorrow.  The librarians all meet on Monday and then Wednesday, the students arrive.  It's been a full summer, but I'm sure going to miss my time in the studio.  Posts will be fewer and farther between again, but I promise to stay connected.  Happy school year to those of you so involved.

At least you got the quilt finished and the studio organized. Now when you find the time, you don't have to hunt for things.

Love your hand quilting Dana. Wish you a peaceful transition back to school too.

So true, Dolores. I found the little light box in the closet that I had been looking for months ago!

Thanks so much, Mary. Hug little Audrey for me.
All the best,
Dana
