I think the task I have the hardest time with is squaring it up. I can get the sides cut in a straight line, but boy do I ever have a heck of a time getting it to square up evenly.
I went ahead and got all my binding ready. I am using my hand dyed fabric to match the centre and cut a bunch of colourful strips and sewed them together, ready to go.
The name. When entering quilts in shows, the first thing you have to record is the name of the quilt. I don't know how other art quilters come up with their names. For me, somewhere along the process of making the quilt, the name just comes to me.
For this quilt, it was going to be a peacock tail until I went to applique it to the background, and then it turned into a flower. So there went all my ideas regarding peacocks. I am trying not to panic as I am very, very near the end and nothing is popping into my head. Probably because it has only been a flower for 4 days, but I ALWAYS have a name by the end of the quilt. I am so not freaking out! (translates to: I am totally freaking out)
Let's hope in the next day or two I have a mind blowing name experience=)
