May Challenge Prooves Challenging, still WIP

on May 31, 2013

Yes, it is May 31 and the noon deadline for the May Challenge has come and gone…unlike the project, it is still a WIP.  That is the way life is, and that is OK.

At least the pieces are all attached to each other (except the binding), and some of the little squiggly machine quilting lines look kind of cute, so that is all good.

A broken needle doesn’t really help.

I had the opportunity of verifying the wisdom of not sewing over bulking seams...yes, it is true, the needle will break.

I’m pretty happy about how it is all coming together.

Here are a couple of pics…

All pinned for machine quilting. To erase the lines I just have to squirt with water.

Some lines have disappeared!

Yellow sections filled with meandering lines and orange with wonky leaves.
