Sometimes I think writing blog titles can be the most fun because they can get a little silly. Maybe you're wondering what this one means, right? Well, I finally, FINALLY, finished the Schnibbles quilt called George.
Since my version is so colorful, though, I'm thinking about naming it Boy George.
Yeah, kinda like that. Remember him? He's the only other George I can think of that's as bright and feminine as my Schnibbles quilt.
Quilting this one seemed to take forever. First of all, I decided to do some fairly heavy quilting--it's been awhile since I used so much meandering, but I DO love all that texture. One of my former quilting teachers/shop owners always said quilts with heavy quilting don't keep you as warm because there aren't the larger pockets of air, but I've never been quite convinced of that. I have quite a few quilts I've done some pretty heavy quilting on that seem to keep me just as warm as any others, and the heavy quilting makes them feel softer and more cuddly. But we all have our own preferences. Still, all that quilting took awhile. The other reason this seemed to take so long was because I took a break of several days about half way through to do some other things. I'm pleased with the result though.
Next up? I think I've got to get serious about piecing this month's vintage Schnibbles pattern, Hat Trick. Are you joining Sinta and Sherri for another year of Schnibbles? I can hardly wait to see the May parade . . . but it would probably be a good idea to get mine done before the parade. Just as soon as I can decide on the fabrics I want to use . . . .
