I made myself a deal...

I have to finish quilting 1 quilt in the stack of finished tops before I can make any. more. quilt. tops. period!    I'm not sure if this is because I'm becoming burned out, unsatisfied that no one seems to want to pay for a quilt, or that I just have too many.  Anyway,  I've undertaken quilting my Bliss sampler quilt and won't start anything else until I complete that sucker!  So far I've finished the outer border.  I know this isn't the proper way to quilt, but I'm lacking inspiration for the center and sashing.  I want to try something besides stippling but am not quite sure what just yet.  Any suggestions?








Last night I finished my roller coaster quilt top.  I think it's so fun!  Looking back at the pattern's suggested way of organizing the blocks, I totally messed it up, but I don't think anyone will notice :)

Hi! I'm hopping over from flickr to check out your bliss.
Maybe you could stitch in the ditch around the blocks. I don't like doing it but with each block different, they might pop more. Or maybe loops. Loops are my favorite and so fast.

The roller coaster quilt looks fabulous! I don't know how they were supposed to be laid out, but I think what you have done is great!

I love your quilt tops! They're both so beautiful!
You're not the only one with a stack of quilt tops. I even have the backs ALREADY MADE and I still haven't basted them. Sigh. And I refuse to take them to the professional because it's too darn expensive and I could spend that money on fabric.
I think I'm becoming scared of putting them through my tiny machine and have shut down the quilting side of my brain, ya know? I know I could hand quilt with perle cotton, but it takes so much time and my arm isn't really going to be up to it for a while.
When I win the lottery I'll buy us both long arms :)
