In case you missed it, today in National Quilting Day. Actually, this holiday has been expanded as of late and this year is being celebrated as a worldwide event including the entire weekend. Well, why not?
So you dang well better be doing something quiltie today, be it working in your studio, sewing with a group, demoing in public, viewing quilts somewhere or checking out some shops that will be more than willing to help you add to your stashes.
As for me, I'm moving forward on the fountain wall quilt. I've thought about all you've said in answer to my question about the variations I'm considering, plus input on Facebook and from my art group. I was rather surprised that there was not more differing of opinion. Variation 4 is the overwhelming favorite, and I have to admit it appears the best choice even though I still really want to do Variation 2. Variation 4 was still on the design wall this morning, so to be extra sure, I switched out some fabric into Variation 2. Yes, I like it, but my eye did the same thing I remember it doing every time I've had this one up. It moves toward a whiter vertical texturing in the brown fabric. It's a distraction that keeps the eye or at least my eye, from the focus of the quilt, which really is the dark water section in the middle. So onward!
What are you doing to celebrate Quilting Day?
