|Chaos Theory, 40"x40", Started: June 2010, Completed: January, 2011|
I started quilting it a few months ago, and wasn't really happy with what I was doing inside the large triangles, so I let it sit for a few months, and practiced my quilting. After doing that circular practice piece a couple of weeks ago, I felt confident enough to finish this.
This was also my first attempt at doing cross-hatching. I didn't mark the quilt, and I lived to regret that. I thought the guide thingy on my walking foot would be adequate for keeping the lines parallel, but I didn't figure on the fact that I was sewing on the bias and the border wanted to stretch a bit. So things kept getting out of alignment. However, it passes the horseback test, and I will enter it in the local juried show, anyway, juts to get the judges comments.
