Crux // 6

It's been a while since I posted about Crux. I finished this top last May and it has been patiently waiting to be picked up again. Partly because I was doing other projects in the meantime but also because it has given me a hard time to decide on the quilting. Meanwhile the quilting is almost done and I'm still not convinced about my decision. This quilt really deserves its name!

This is the current stage

I could also have stopped here

Or I could have quilted it with black thread? Or black&white variegated thread? Or again a different color at all? Or chosen a completely different quilting design??

I really liked this stage though

But this moment is gone and can't come back.

Now all I can do is decide if I'm done quilting.

Stripes I

I finished quilting my improv stripes quilt and I'm working on the binding. I am really in love with this quilt and the freshness and happiness it transmits. Also I really enjoyed the design process with the improv stripes. I'm thinking this will not be my last stripes quilt and so I'm naming it Stripes I.

Progress update

In the meantime I have started to quilt the improv stripes quilt. I'll be sewing "straight" lines in an irregular grid form. I think I'm going to like it! Still thinking about the name for this quilt...
