Sign Here

This is the signature panel that will be going on the back of Julie's quilt.

The flimsy is complete. It needs to be trimmed and squared. I showed my son the backing I have selected. He doesn't like it, but I'm not worried about his opinion. The backing fabric is perfect. Over the weekend I also figured out what I will do for the binding.

My son said once, about one of my quilts, "Mom, you don't just go over the top. You keep going." So that has become a mantra of sorts for me.

"If you're going over the top, keep going."


Funny where inspiration comes from.

Sounds like the perfect phrase for your next word quilt (what a great class example THAT would be!) ...


it is EVERYwhere!

I laughed when I read "He doesn't like it, but I'm not worried about his opinion." Why do we bother to ask opinions of some of our loved ones" What do they know anyway?

Hi -subjective- opinion is different from his -objective- opinion. He doesn't -like- the fabric, but that doesn't change the -objective- fact that the colors are perfectly related to the quilt itself and are keeping in spirit with the quilt.

The fact is, he has one of the best "eyes" I know for critiquing artwork. He is unerring when it comes to telling me if (for example)some negative spaces are too big, how some shapes "read" and if the "flow" or "feeling" I am looking for is present or absent.
