Welcome back readers. Thank you for your kind words on the quilt top post. These Granny Squares are just GORGEOUS! Am I right? Blanche Devereaux, well this version, is ready for her introduction to the world.
Let me tell you a little about finishing this quilt. I rushed to quilt this one and paid the price. TWICE! I started quilting the first time and my tension was off. It appears little hands may have turned a knob on my machine and I didn’t realize it. I turned my tension down and then down some more. Then when I thought I had it right, I ripped out all the stitching to start fresh.
Then the tension still wasn’t right. A second pass a quilting and it was off. After getting pissed off, I walked away from this project for a couple of days. I put it in time out.
I came back and the quilting went smoothly. Thank goodness as I really didn’t want to straight line quilt this one. This quilt gave me a bit of sass, much like Blanche.
Have you seen this fun quiz on Buzzfeed? Take it and tell me in the comments which character you got. I will tell you mine below.
I bought around five yards of this Art Gallery print a few months ago. I knew I had some girl quilts coming up that it could be perfect for. Plus, it’s Art Gallery so it’s buttery soft.
This quilt is ready for it’s new home and can be found here on Etsy. By the way I’m a Dorothy Zbornak.
