My Quip - Colored Windows II aka Coloured Windows II


Thought you would appreciate a quick status on the progress of Colored Window II, Coloured Windows II for you far-Northerners.

At this point the cobbled-brick work, the stippled window frames, and the horizontal lines of the shades have taken over 170,000 stiches. And that is just about half-way done of the quilting. I’m just wondering where between 350,000 and 400,000 stiches will be reached. We had to order two more, large monster spools of the matching thread.

Colored Windows II has been our biggest challenge as yet.

As a note, we have not programmed our Longarm quilting machine to do the work. It does have the electronic capabilities but Colored Windows II has to be done manually with the machine. (Sorry about the pseudo-oxymoron.) We cannot just turn on the machine and walk away.

We are amazed at we have learned and definitely look forward to what is yet to come.

Check out our currently available quilts at Quilts SB Etsy, especially the current Sale on our Christmas Quilts.

At least 10 new Quilts and Series are now in progress – Mondrian I and Mondrian II; Mauk II and Mauk III; NCBB; Colored Windows II; Orange Peel Indian Summer; Paul Klee 1 and Paul Keel 2; and our new Cathedral Window Series. I have designed at least four variations on the Cathedral Window Series.

To see previously posted quilts, there is a visual Grid presentation at the bottom of the Quilts SB page. Move your cursor over any mini-picture found there and click to see an enlargement. Move your cursor to the "Q#" link to see the quilt's details. If the quilt’s title is highlighted in yellow or in red, it has found a home in a collection and is no longer available.

If you are interested, and would like some more information of any available quilts, regarding costs, shipping, and insurance, please check our Quilts SB Etsy Shop.

If you have any questions and/or comments please feel free to get in touch with me via email.
