MSBHQAL- Blind Spot

I have been taking it sort of slow. I got all my blocks together for the MSBHQAL which is about to be over. I bought the batting, the red fabric for the quilt top. I have been sitting here thinking about how to piece it. I thought I would have all day to devote to the finish, and it really didn't happen. There's always tomorrow.

This is hubby's quilt. Which means, he decided on the placement and background color, the backing color. I chose the black sashing. I brought the idea of using this fabric in this pattern and he agreed. I tried to push for blue background and lost. Boo! I still love it though. He also named it-Blind Spot.
Which spot?? hehe

     The MSBHQAL has been super fun and fabulous. This is the flickr group. Check it out. Make a block or 30. They are really addicting, and the possibilities are endless. I stepped out of my box. I took it right over the edge. Mostly, due to hubby's bright interpretation, and some Sparkle's influence with negative space idea. Sometimes, it's good to get out of the box. I do love to try something new. This is all of that!

          Quilting-  The front and back being so very different in color will mean that I will have to really be one with my machine. Gotta love tension issues. I will have to put on my game face. :/ LOL  I think I am going to straight stitch this one. I was also thinking about the boxy type quilting. I am still thinking about adding just a bit more red. Hopefully, this will be a Finish it up Friday Finale. Blog at ya later.

    1. I know. I am loving how yours is going. He is definitely a man of action. He loves bold colors. I really am going to need a Tylenol while quilting. :) Thanks, I am feeling lucky.

    1. Thank you for the email. I looked all over your blog for your email. I even checked out the cosmos on In color order. That would be sooo awesome to be featured there. I had an amazing time as well, and I can't wait to have another sewing day. You are so talented too!!! We'll have to have a get together outside of the guild.
