I am waiting for some supplies to come through the mail so I have spent today setting up my quilting frame. It was good to see it not lying on the floor — but it takes up a good chunk of space & now I want to rearrange everything — including where the cable line is. Nothing in life is ever easy.

I also took my latest quilt into Photoshop & removed all of the color. This is a great design trick to do when you are evaluating a piece before committing it to quilting. You want a good range of values — darks to mediums to lights — and a good flow across the piece. This piece has that — but I expected that since its theme was centered around values. I can also see a few spots that fell a little shorter of the mark than I realized — but overall, I think it holds its own.
