Not much to post today, as I am working on completing this quilt top for my Color Theory class on Tuesday night. Considering that I started Saturday morning, I am doing pretty good. Considering that the quilt is supposed to be COMPLETE, I am not doing so well. I have arrived at the conclusion that I will just get the top done (hopefully) but I won’t be able to get it quilted. So you can just imagine what my weekend has been like.
I also have to take this opportunity to warn you about Rowenta Focus irons. I know I paid over $100 for mine, to be my good quilting iron, and it leaks. It leaks all over what I am trying to iron. Also, I would like to have a word with the person who designed the 1/4 inch piecing foot for the Classica Husqvarna sewing machine, because a foot that has a little niche on the left side that catches on seams is pretty much useless. It is good for sewing the FIRST 1/4 inch seam, but if you have to stitch over any seams, just forget about it, unless you like jogs in your seams.
Anyway, I am pretty happy with how the quilt looks, hopefully I will get it put together!
The theme this month is “Double Complement” which means a color and the color next to it on the color wheel, and then their complements. My colors were orange, yellow-orange, blue, and blue-violet. So this is pretty much a Broncos quilt but in this house we are ok with that. If they are having a losing season we will call it a Colorado Sunset quilt.
