I can not figure out what my deal is lately. I keep making quilts and then staining them. Today I am doing a partial show of a quilt I made for a family that lives a couple blocks from me that just had their 4th daughter. I will show off the full quilt later but here is a teaser from my Binding.
The picture above was taken just after I finished the binding. I think it looks pretty neat just laying there on the table but that is not really what this post is about. I did some free motion quilting on this quilt and its not something I am good at. This quilt screamed for something other then my normal strait line quilting. My wife tells me I did it more dense then she would have liked, but I think it turned out pretty fantastic. Though what I want to share is my bad luck in the washing machine. My kids it seems washed a pen recently. Well Pens and a new quilt do not mix well. You cant hardly see it, but in the picture below there is a long black streak on the quilt that is ink. My wife washed it a second time and yep got the ink out on the back and got new ink on the front. It took 2 more washes to get all the ink out. Will give more pictures later of the finished quilt.
