    Dizzy quilt, last update, I think...

    Well, I just put two borders on my dizzy quilt. I now really like it, which I didn't earlier. I have noticed this tendency in me though...when I start a quilt, I rarely like it. Sure wish I could get over that.

    I put this finished picture at the end of the other posts of this quilt. Someone told me to do that, as somehow they get emails when there is a new post to threads they are interested in. I have been unable to figure out how to do that myself, but for those of you who have, you will find a picture just like this one. There is no need for you to look at this one too. I guess next time I will just stick to one thread...

    Anyway, here is the latest version of my dizzy quilt. It ended up being a bit larger than my design wall, and my room is small so I can't back up enough to get all of the quilt in the picture...but you can still see enough of it, I think.

    I think it is not dizzy anymore too. Isn't that cool. It does remind me of antique quilts that used the two colors, and I have always loved those. Great job.

    You are right to call it dizzy, makes my eyes do strange things.
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...

    When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000 experiments before he got it to work. A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times. He said, "I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a 2000 step process."
