Be Still My Heart

May 03, 2010

The rest was just details.  "The Hollow" by Nora Roberts ♦♦♦◊◊

Be Still My Heart, indeed! I've finally gotten this lovely all quilted and bound (I did the handwork all by myself!) and hung up at the shop. Of course, I forgot to take pictures before I hung it at the shop, so you'll have to pretend that the lighting's better.

BSMH MQ2My vision for quilting didn't change when it actually came time to do the work, except that the brilliant idea of quilting on poly instead of cotton/blend was snuffed even after going to town to buy some... I got the wrong size poly so it was Warm 'N White after all - no trips thru the washer for this baby!


I used white rayon thread (the better to shimmer you with, my dear) on the top and white lingerie thread on the back.

I like this a LOT.

(My understated comment) I like it too! You've really outdone yourself on this one. (It really does look so much better in person.)
