I didn't think I'd ever get logged in tonight! Don't know what the problem was...
How do you like my book shelf?! All straightened up and neat...until I start researching the next project... ;o) That's part of the fun of being a quilter...or a knitter...or any sort of crafter.
Okay, here's the quilt. It's a Rose of Sharon variation inspired by "Rose Spray" in the book Great American Quilts 1997. Think I'll call it Sherry's Rose.Whaddya think?
The frame is a Hinterberg kit. I bought it shortly after Sam and I married. He bought the three lengths of conduit and the long board between the uprights. I needed some side tension so bought some spring plier-type clamps. Or the more technical term, "whaddyacallums." I also purchased some velcro-type stuff. Sewed wrong sides together. Then asked Sam to somehow put the two things together. He slipped one red rubber grip off each clamp, cut a slit in the end and slipped the velcro strap through, drilled a hole in that handle end and bolted the velcro strips to the handle, slipped the rubber grip back on...times six. Voila. Side tension.
I watched American Idol this evening so didn't get a chance to quilt, but I did try my rolling chair and rolled from one end of the frame to the other. I LOVE MY NEW FLOORS!
How DARE you bring it up. NO...every single thing is still not put up. YES...there's still stuff on the guest bed. I'll get it cleaned up before you get here. Sheesh!
