A Great Deal

Now that I have your attention...

"It takes a great deal of history to produce a little literature."
-Henry James, American author (1843 - 1916)

It takes a great deal of quilting to produce a quilt.  Not to mention the piecing, appliqué, cutting, dyeing, buying, hmmm.... did I forget anything?


I was going to have a quilt to show today.  I was going to finish this quilt today.   I was going to take it outside and photograph it in the sun.  


But there was little sun -- and when there was, it was too hot to go out.  And the saboteurs with whom I live conspired to prevent me from finishing the quilting.  I did pick out something for the binding.  And I did make a label -- it is really cool (even if I do say so...) --  I did it with Word and printed it out on my printer on some of that stuff you buy by the roll.  But I can't show any of that because (big sigh...) it's not finished.   


But I will share a couple of pictures. 


So...maybe tomorrow?

You certainly have my attention - tigers and bamboo, and zebra(?)stripes, and great batiks, and terrific color choices - what is it?!

Can't wait to see it finished!!! So far love the quilting in the blocks. Can't wait to see the border quilting and the label.
