Sep 09: It's Here. I am showing you Michelle's preview pictures until I get a chance to work on this, hopefully tomorrow or Sunday. Need the usual specs: thread, pattern & density.
Sep 13: Michelle will embellish with embroidery when she gets this back so I am only going to quilt the background. She is looking for a pattern.
Sep 14: I am too ... all 26 sites I have earmarked. Looking for a background filler. Thread is Light Blue (#610) w/Silver bobbins.
Sep 15: Michelle selects Puppy Paws. Started working on the Intelliquilter program for this project.
Sep 16: Hmmm. Finally decided to get the wall hanging out and do some measurements. Didn't realize the faces take up a huge amount of the quilt leaving only a 2" or so border to be longarmed. This won't work unless a very floppy loose faces are what is wanted here. Have suggested that my partner do a bit of playing too. Too many ideas to detail here or by email. Time to get our heads together & talk this through.
Sep 17: Posted lots of densities spelled out. What we carve out, what we quilt at what density--these are the unanswered questions. Been working on/thinking about this little 23 x 46 project for a week now. Can't go any further.
Sep 19: We have a plan.
Oct 02: After a week of intense planning, I needed to back away from these little guys for a while. Now I'm ready. Prepped. Loaded. Quilting. Finished 2 of the 3 dogs. Will finish in the morning.
Oct 03: Quilted.
