Don’t Fence Me In

May 6, 2011




Here’s my finished Innocent Crush quilt top, in the Fenced In pattern.  I like how it turned out but my big dilemma is how to quilt it.  My comfort level lies with straight lines, but the quilt is dominated by straight lines.  I am considering trying to free motion it but that has me a wee bit nervous. I really want to do the quilting myself but all that fabric has me concerned about my ability to maneuver the fabric.  We will see.

Gracie is enjoying the quilt.  First she played in her fort and then she rolled around on it after I spread it on the bed.  Gracie tested, Gracie approved.

About Me

Welcome to my spot on the web where I talk about needlework, crafts, and [many] other random things.

A few tidbits about me: I met my husband in college, flirting over tuba letters in the Penn Band. Our dog, CJ, and our cat, Sabrina, round out our family. I'm a sewist, knitter and needlepointer, and an occasional scrapbooker. I love organizing, reading, making jewelry, and hiking. A Chicago girl at heart, I am an avid follower the Cubs, Bears, and Blackhawks.
