I have been busy with Geometric Slide. This is a quilt from the book Vintage Quilt Revival. I used a Joel Dewberry print for the binding and I straight line quilted the heck out of it. Just when I started to hand stitch the binding, I noticed that I had a pucker in the backing right near the edge... thankfully. And of course, this would have been the last few rows of quilting when I was trying to get finished before lunch on Sunday. Argh! Bad words! So... during the first bit of the Super Bowl, I got busy with the stitch ripper and ripped out a few rows of quilting in order to smooth the pucker. I also had to undo the machine stitched binding in that area. More bad words. There is a happy ending to the story. Pucker disappeared. Quilting is done. Binding is attached and hand sewn and of course, Seattle won the Super Bowl.
And as an aside, I really love Joel Dewberry's orange prints. I am not a huge fan of orange and it is lacking in my stash but I have found that no matter what the line, if it is an orange and a Joel Dewberry, I am going to like it. Maybe I should say that I am a fan of Joel Dewberry. And I really like what he does with orange. Just saying.
Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for Work in Progress Wednesday.
