I'm planning to baste it today (the bane of my quilty existence) and start quilting on it this evening or tomorrow after church.
I'm not as enamored with this quilt as I was with the first memory quilt, the Western Kaleidoscope, (although it is growing on me) and I've been looking at it trying to figure out why. I think it's because overall, it's a much darker quilt. The kaleidoscope had the tan background, and was just more interesting to look at in general. This definitely has everything to do with the fabrics though, and not the pattern.
After this, I still have two more of these memory quilts to complete, but as I mentioned in my initial post about this topic, I only took 12 shirts to begin. Since those shirts actually made two quilts (I only expected them to make one), I feel like I'm ahead of the game. Thankfully, I won't be able to get more shirts until I go back to Baton Rouge, and that will be at the end of July. Although I feel a little bit guilty for saying this because I know these are special quilts, I am tired of looking at manly plaids.
One thing's for sure- I'm expecting a fat eighth bundle of Marmalade fabric by Bonnie and Camille in the mail today and I am certainly ready to get back to some girly, summery, fun fabrics!
