MAZE TO NOWHERE QUILT IS IN THE FRAME NOW

I am quilting the 'maze to nowhere' quilt i mentioned in one of the last posts...i put it in the frame Friday and have been working on it most of the weekend, that is when i wasn't in the sewing room tinkering around


this quilt design seems to be hard for me to find what looks right as a quilt stencil....i am hand quilting it so it wont have the all over design that it would if machine quilted....so i designed a double box design with a inside box design...i wanted something that was going to touch maybe all of the seams in the block...then when i quilt the design i go back and quilt in the ditch the seams where the blocks meet...that is the game plan for this next week...

but....i am sure i will take breaks and work on some other things like the string quilt blocks....i made more of them yesterday and when i counted them i had 59...that suprised me as i thought i only had 20 something...i do have enough of them now to make a oversize lap quilt but i think i will keep going for a few more...i dont want it too big as it will be quilted on the machine with all those seams and the bigger quilts are just too much for me to wrestle on my little machine....

when at the quilt ladies group meeting this last time one of the ladies i know has been doing quilting for people on her quilting machine....i think i am going to look into this and find out more...if she dont charge way too much i just might have a way of getting more done...i have several not publically seen yet that would be nice to have quilted and displayed or given to family members...

well the phone just rang and it will be a long call....more later.....
