Well I'm in cutting up mode again! Often I find I've made a quilt just far too big!
And Steelyard Frieze is one of those, it's so wide it hangs over the edge of my storage shelves and I have to get into that room sideways through the door!
Now I've put up with this crab like entry to the art quilt store/library (aka spare bedroom) for 3 years or so in the hope that Someone would have a Pink Sofa over which they absolutely had to have hanging a very strong beautiful PINK art quilt! But, I have finally realized, nobody Ever had such a sofa!! At least not for a very long time - and probably only in Hollywood too!
Well, here's the quilt:
and I'm thinking this would cut up into 3 very nice slices:
of course I'd try to make them a little more even in width and probably would alter that strange "cow" effect on the right hand one - spell checker was having me write "strangle" the cow on the right!! And maybe - for once - spell checker's wild guess is the right solution!
So - what d'you think? Should I cut it up?? - it really is too wide and very awkward to ship - it's 68" wide, by 35" high, so each slice would be 32" wide (I'd lose a bit on the seam allowance of the interfacing) and 35" high - which is a very nice size for a pink bathroom!!
all comments most willingly accepted!!!
And, if you're eating turkey, make sure it's NOT pink!!
And, of course, nothing better after the turkey than a nice cuppa tea with the old pumpkin pie!!
If you have been, thanks for reading! Happy Thanksgiving Day! Elizabeth
