Nightmare quilting...

I haven't blogged in a few days because I have been working on the same quilt the entire time!!! My own quilt... What a nightmare it has become. I guess what I envision for the quilting doesn't always turn out the same when stitched out. There have  been a few hours of picking out and re-grouping as well as remarking the quilting. I'll be sooooo happy when this one is finished! No prizes expected, but a good lesson in patience and determination.
Border and sashing treatment

Each block is a letter of the alphabet. The quilting is a corresponding block staring with that letter.
C is for Churn Dash...

I started with block lettering under the blocks, but hated how it looked. Pick, pick, pick...
Many hours later, I settled for freehand cursive writing in a contrasting color thread. At that point, I had already decided I was getting tired of this quilt.

I finished the white parts in another marathon session and hope to have the colored parts
done today.

I honestly can't wait to get this off my machine!!
Maybe I'll like it after  a few days ...
Mr Wazoo has quilted every-other day, and finished these quilts for customers.

So we used a snowflake panto!

It looks good with this modern panto.

Yardwork also continues with the fire pit coming along nicely. Tim had to take one day off this project to re-do part of the walkway that sank a bit after all the rain we had. I think his plan to quilt a day, then do yard work a day is a good one.
