I'm Seeing Red

Work on the Alabama quilt has progressed nicely. Oops! I guess I forgot to say anything about this one didn't I? It's another barter quilt. Yes, I know I said I was not going to do this again but really now, what better way to get a nice bronze sculpture than to barter? Anyway, if you stand on your head while looking at this photo you can see the nice cursive letter 'A' that is so familiar to the University of Alabama fans. This is the back side of the quilt. I am using red thread exclusively on the back and for the majority of the front. But this section on the front needed white thread and it is showing up on the backing as white dots. Once the quilting is finished, I will take a red pigma pen and touch each one of those white dots and POOF! they will disappear. 

Are you counting the barter quilt/sculptures? This one make #4.


  1. I have heard of that pen idea before - it's a good one.

  2. 4? Wow! I have also found the wonders of bartering. It is so fun....Of course dyeing yarn doesn't take me as long or get me things as nice as a sculpture!

  3. I like the bartering idea- at least it put a value on your time!

  4. The barter idea sounds great. I'm sorry, but I just have to say this-War Eagle!! Is an Auburn quilt next?? ;-)
