Work in Progress

No chance yet to delve into the new fabrics... I am practicing restraint until I finish up some previously started projects! Here are some close up shots of one of the quilts which I am currently working on. Lots of machine quilting on this one! (By the way, my camera was behaving very wacky-doodle-lee, and so the color is off on all of these pictures. The quilt is actually a rich dark brown and lovely deep aqua).

Wow, that stitching is something else!

And so fun to get a peek into your process a bit!

How DO you do that? It's a mystery to me. Look how evenly done it all is! Amazing. You've an amazing talent.

Sandra Ree said...

You! Are very talented! I can't sew on a machine worth a lick. :)

Oh my goodness Vicki! Your machine free stitching skills are incredible!

I am so happy I bought one of your space spores. It really gives me joy to look at while I rock Occy to sleep.

Hey! I commented on this earlier, but it looks like my comment got deleted.

I don't think you'd delete it, since I was totally singing your praises -- perhaps it was during the Blogger outage?

Well, I said something like:

Holy guacamole! I bow down to your amazing quilting skills!

Whenever I try to meander, it looks like... I don't know what. But it's bad. Reeeeal bad.

You continue to amaze and inspire with every project you post -- keep up the great work!

Beautiful! Love the texture that the quilting reveals. I'm going to bite the bullet and give free motion a try. What's the worst that could happen? (Don't answer that!)

Looks like hard work, but great results! Love the squiggly stitching.

Hey Harriet said...

I'm chuckling over your 'wacky-doodle-lee' camera comment :) This is beautiful & such a scrummy colour combo with the rich brown & aqua. As everyone else has said, I'm also amazed by your talent!
