This isn't the greatest picture, but it's the best I could do. It doesn't help that this quilt is fairly dark to begin with - that whole lacking contrast thing I was talking about. I had leftover piano keys from doing this border and that was what gave me the idea to make Big Love.
I'm really pleased with the quilting (a combination of perle cotton size 8 and 3-strand embroidery floss) I just wish it showed up better. I used a chalk marker to denote all the lines.
I've been trying to build a barricade to keep little kitties off my hutch, but Pokey manages to get up there all the same.
These letters came from Giraffe Dreams Carol for me to put into my student letter quilt one of these days (not anytime soon, I assure you). They are marvelous. Thank you, Carol.I've seen houses for Bonnie popping up all over the blogosphere. Thanks for making her the blocks - I know she'll put them to a great use. Can't wait to see them all together.
My husband and I went to our favorite Italian restaurant for lunch yesterday and then watched Moonstruck. A perfect belated Valentine's celebration. Now he's kicking me off the computer so I'll talk to you later.
