Pandemonium

oh what fun or way way too much work? Am I just a gutton for punishment? It's an expensive pattern, however you can make 7 smaller wall hangings instead of big quilt which is what I would do. Also not doing it in Kaffe fabrics way too $$$ there. My usual tonals and batiks etc.

Hoping to get started on quilting Sprouts this weekend. I have off for 4 days. I decided to make it easy on myself no free motion letting the machine do quilting (embroidery stippling) in the sashing and small squares and I'm doing stitch in the ditch around the big squares. Pictures to come this weekend.

I also really like this one

they are amazing and I am in awe of the skills required.


Do I appreciate the artistry and work? Absolutely.

Would I want to do this myself? Absolutely not.

I don't think it so much skills but patience as it isn't something you do in a weekend lol. I would do it as a fusible applique. Even though they are meant for needle turn.

My first impression is "whaaaa!"
It looks really busy and detailed (I'm guessing its big?), I would never ever attempt.

But I'm just beginning with quilting, have no time, not too much skills, and most importantly, I'm not you ;-)

Wow what an incredible quilt.

Me, I would not make it, as the finished quilt is too busy for my taste.

It is pretty to look at, but I would never make it. Strikes me as overkill, can't even really appreciate the details when there are so many.

If I'm investing that much time and effort, it's on my own original designs.
