CGQC Sept/Oct Goals
Well, 'Fall' is the most bestest season (for me) and I would like to make a little something special for Halloween (my most favorite fall event...then it's Thanksgiving...lol!). I will be making a Schnibbles - Scratch (small) with Chic or Treat (LOVE IT!). I happen to get a jump start on it last month so I'm hoping to get it done within the next week or two. I even took some pics during the process - thinking I'd do a post...lol! I'll have to show you later. I would also would like to quilt the Decoy top that I just finished. I'm only going to commit to 2 projects because this is such a fun time/season (after the heat leaves) to be outside and I just want to be able to enjoy it and do what I want to do. Oh and when the weather starts acting like fall - make some homemade vegetable soup....smile.
Now about quilting the quilt, I hate to say it but I can't think of any suggestions - at this moment. One might come to me later and then I'll do another post but for now - nothing. I will say that I prefer an overall stippling on quilts. Yes, it's simple but for me I prefer the quilt top to be the focal point. The pattern, fabric line, piecing and placing of the colors/fabric is what's most important to me. Hey, I'm a gal that only wears mascara - less is more. If I'm hitting the town...I might wear lip stick! I know, very exciting! LOL! Don't get me wrong, I love seeing quilts quilted with beautiful designs on them. I might even (down the road) get the urge to try something that fancy but for now I'm on the path I want to be on. And thanks to Kelly & Darlene, I used a pantograph for the first time. I might try that again...down the road.
I'm looking forward to the next 2 months!
