So it is finally bound, and I thought I’d have permanent eye strain. It is bound in solid black, and yes, with black thread. Holy cow, am I glad it is finished!! If you want to see it from the beginning click HERE. I had to put two lamps next to my chair to see the binding as I went. Are you still with me? Now I need your help.
I have two questions for you to answer, and there will be a drawing for a video as a prize. Just leave a comment with your opinion to be entered. The drawing will be random, so even if you don’t have an idea or opinion, you can still win. I have to put a sleeve on it for showing, and I am conflicted now about the orientation.
The original idea was 4-3-2-1-2 coming down like a waterfall from the top left, with four down, then three down, then two down, then 1 at the bottom, and two next. But to me looking at it this way, do you read across instead of down into 3-3-2-1-1-2? Is that what you see, or do you see the waterfall? Call this way Option A.
So, here it is with the other end up, Option B. Now it reads 2-1-1-2-3-3, or do you see 2-1-2-3-4?
I asked the longarm ladies on the forum and got a mixed response. Some like the heavier block end at the bottom, saying it is more natural to put the larger grouping at the bottom. But others like it in the original waterfall setting, saying it is opposite of traditional so should be placed in a non-traditional way, more artistic expression. And I need a name for the setting design.
So, which do you like better? And what would you call the setting design? Comment on setting name and/or which way it should hang to be
entered to win this Public Broadcasting produced DVD on the Great American Quilt Revival. (Giveaway has been done). The Great American Quilt Revival is the story of how quilts came to be recognized as works of art and how the craft of quilting has exploded into popular culture. It has a one-hour show plus 45 minutes of bonus footage and interview. I don’t know if it will play in DVD players outside the US, I assume it to be Region 1, although it doesn’t say. If you are international, I’ll send a book instead, so comment away!
Update – I have been thinking about this all day, responding to all the comments, and then got this brainstorm. I think I might call it Shooting Stars, the black being the night sky. Or maybe Falling Stars.
If you don’t have an opinion on the questions, comment anyway, you’ll still be able to win the DVD if your number is chosen by the random number generator. So, what do you think?
