The kids are in bed and Mr. Steam is at work. Which means it’s quilting time!! Time to finish up M’s tree skirt. Or at least get the next step done. The center was done. But there was still quite a bit of unquilted white space next to the trees.
And, yet again, I had no idea what I was going to do. This quilt has been doing a really good job letting me know what it needs. So I just sat in front of it for a few minutes. And, yep it started talking.
I tried drawing out a few designs on paper. But, none of them spoke to me. I wanted something that said winter and Christmas. But I still wanted a modern look. I didn’t think that more angles would work.
But, what if I added some swirls. It could look like a blustery wind. And then fill in any gaps with pebbles. That could be some snow. Yea! That’s the ticket.
That was just about PERFECT!!!!! I loved how it looks. I was able to finish 3 of the 8 trees. I should be able to finish up the rest of the trees tomorrow. Then I’ll have to figure out how to quilt N’s train skirt.
