Sea Green Again

I unsewed all the machine quilting and then redesigned this one. The green color just won't photograph right. It is brighter than this shows. That print fabric keeps unraveling. Or is it fraying? Anyway, I'm still very unhappy with it. I have been reading and thinking about machine quilting. I have an idea for sandwiching and machine quilting this so am anxious to get the top finished. I wanted it about 50 x 66 as that is about the size I need to throw over me. This one may not be quite that big.

I have to get Kipper into his doctor to get an allergy shot. We are both allergic to ragweed. The pills are helping me, although they make me so sleepy, but they don't do it for doggy. Lots of other errands and things this week. Car appointment. Got to get boobs squeezed tomorrow. :)

Look forward to seeing your idea come together on the quilt.

hope you're able to get this looking the way you want... re the fraying/unravelling -- if you use fray stop along the edge before ripping it apart, it keeps the seam allownace from completely disintegrating :-)

Hi Katie, looks like you've been keeping your fingers busy and staying in out of the ragweed!

I feel for you, my allegeries are bonkers just lately too. Sniffling, sneezing and watery eyes, oh joy.

Pretty quilt top coming, sorry to hear about the raveling. I do find some brands of fabric ravel more than others and it's not because they are cheaper! Must be looser weave or something. Stay well, hugs, Finn

Hope the mammo goes well.
