I'm at That Point....

...where the stitch ripper has been brought out.  So close and yet so far... This is what I get for going 'off piste'- not using a pattern, but trying to duplicate something that is not my own.  The 'shadow box' seems too wide, it's getting narrowed.  The expanse of green blue in the link) is too expansive in a bigger size- it's being truncated.

But soon, soon, soon, there will be a queen sized quilt top!!  And my thoughts are already turning to the back side, and the quilting.

Here's what I'm thinking for the quilting...

Straightforward, modern, manly.


  1. Ooohhhh I love this. Must. See. Full. Pix. Do ever go to greenwood quilters in Guelph? Stupid question, of course you do. I love that shop and never fell to make a dent in their merchandise when I go.

    1. Of course I love Greenwood Quiltery! They even know my name now... which means I've spent a fair bit of time, ahem, and money there!! Just blogged the finished product. I didn't end up doing all that quilting- didn't want it to be so stiff and saved myself a fair amount of time too I reckon!
