I hate being stressed out over a hobby. I don’t even think it’s that I’m so worked up over my quilting, it’s that stupid quilt rack that I ordered from Crate & Barrel several weeks ago. Turns out that I have to be home for a four hour block for them to drop it off. Since I don’t get home until 4pm, there’s no way that’s possible. I’ve yelled at the shipping company, and Crate & Barrel, and they sugessted that I pay for after hours shipping, or drive the hour and a half drive to Grand Rapids to pick it up at the shipping hub. Which to that I say absolutly not! So hopefully I’ll be able to have them drop it off at my parents house, which is still in my mind, wrong, since I paid to have it delivered to my house. So just a word to anyone out there that’s considereding having Crate & Barrel furniture shipped to their house–they’re not nice to deal with, and I personally won’t deal with them again.
Now on to my quilting dillema. I’ve started the quilting on Granny’s Quilt, and although I like it so far, I don’t know how to complete it. Each block has two sqaures on opposite points, where I’ve quilted a square with an “X” through. On its opposite corners, the four points of each quilt square meet together. It looks a little bland to me there, and I’m not quite sure how to quilt it. I thought about outlining a simple circle, but I’m not sure if that will look right. Either way, here’s a picture of the quiltwork so far. If anyone has any ideas for ways to quilt the blank spaces (Look to the previous post if you need a reminder of what the front looks like) please leave me some comments. I’m taking any and all ideas–even silly ones. Those sometimes turn out to work really well.
*note: I’m sorry if my description made no sense. Hopefully the picture is self explanitory.
**note2: It is a lot larger of a blank space than it looks like in this picture. Any ideas are greatly appreciated!
