The Perfect Storm Aftermath

I forgot to show you that I finished quilting the quilt that was The Quilting Perfect Storm from blogpost February 9.  I hesitate to refresh your memory, but you can find it here.  After Carl and I unsewed all the previously horrid quilting, I let the quilt just sit for a while, not very excited about starting over.  I finally decided I needed to not let the quilt get the better of me.  I re-pinned the quilt sandwich together, this time with lots of pins.  I stitched in the ditch in every seam.  The center big blocks got a swirly, free motion design, which helped disguise the puffiness.  The colored borders around the centers got a bit of a feather design.  You can't see it too well in the photos, but the light sashings got a free motion big zig-zag, and the corners got an X.  After binding, I threw the quilt in the wash, and was pleased to see it didn't look half bad!  It isn't my favorite quilt (after all, there is not RED in the quilt at all!),  but it looks fine in the Green Room for now.  Jerilynn
