A Meandering Kind of Day

It was a meandering kind of day.  I decided to quilt my Joy(ful) Gifts quilt with a very simple meandering. Yes, I know custom type quilting probably would be nicer but I really do like simple quilting.  Give me a quilt with meandering, stippling, swirls, loops, straight line cross hatching, etc and I'm a very happy girl. 
Custom quilting is drop dead gorgeous but truth be told it makes me nervous.  LOL 

I spent my couch/TV time sewing down the binding on the Mite Little Bite I showed you yesterday. 

I plan to have something new to share in my next post.  :-)

Enjoy a pieceful Saturday.

In Friendship!

I love this quilt! Where did the pattern come from? You probably mentioned that in an earlier post, but I cannot remember. You have a wonderful blog that I really enjoy.

I love your quilt - it makes me feel joyful just looking at it! I'm going to track down the pattern and add it to my Make Someday list.

Meandering is good - it always has THE best look when it is is washed. I don't think anything else ever looks as quilty. Great job on ANOTHER finish. I think.

Have you seen the commercial for some insurance company with Jane Lynch - of Glee fame and other things? Her last line applies to you - we'll, aren't you just the little show off.

As always, I look forward to seeing what's next.

Meandering is fun, I like it too. You've accomplished a lot in September, looks like you'll be ready for Christmas very soon. I'll be looking for your new awesome sewing project.

I like simple best too. Your quilt looks gorgeous :-)

Allie said...

I like simple quilting too, Darlene, I'd be afraid to use something custom. This is darling!

Karin said...

I'm a meander kind of gal too - I just love the cuddle factor that it brings to a quilt. That sure did make a super cute quilt!

This quilt is lovely and I think anything more than a simple meander would take away from the piecing. Congrats on another finish!
