My sister Cheryl is making a quilt for our great nephew Xavier and she has asked me to quilt it for her. I tried to get her to commit to a particular pattern either free-hand or panto and all she would say is 'do whatever you want'.
I got the top loaded on the frame last night and I am ready to go but I just don't know how to quilt it. I wish it was easy for me but the quilt just does not magically tell me what and how to do it. Some quilters just know exactly how they want the quilt to look and they have the imagination and skill to make the magic happen. It doesn't have to be fancy or complicated but I do want to make it look like it was done well and not really sloppy. I think I will pull out my whiteboard and play around a little bit this morning and see what happens. Hopefully, I will figure something out quickly because I need it finished for tomorrow morning.
Thank you to all of you for your words of sympathy on the loss of my brother-in-law. I do appreciate all of your kind thoughts.
