I finished my hope quilt top yesterday. I am going to do my quilt sandwich today and start machine quilting. I am pleased with the way it turned out. One of the many things I love about liberated quilting is that if your measurements are a little off you just add or cut a bit off. I used Tonya's tutorial on wonky hearts for the heart down at the bottom. My husband was off playing golf so I had most of the day to myself. If anyone has any suggestions on quilting please let me know. I don't have anything in mind yet.
I used one of the blocks I made at the quilt retreat for my color inspiration. This block is similar to one of Gwen's in her new book. It doesn't may not look like it but it is purple, orange and red.
Some of the ladies at the quilt retreat from Seattle use clothes from Goodwill in their quilts. It was so cool to see how they use old jeans and shirts. One lady cut up corduroy jeans to use in her quilt. It gave the quilt such a nice look and texture.
Last night we went to my husband's high school class reunion. I won't mention how many years ago he graduated! It was fun to see how much some people have changed. Of course he had changed the least of anyone, at least that is what they told him!
