Now, on to some FUN stuff! I quilted the first WIP yesterday. I LOVE how it turned out. It's not a very big quilt- small baby or table topper, but I love it just the same.
I used a Charm pack of Fig Tree's FRESH COTTON. (Again, started these ages ago).
I pieced them together- square to square. Then I appliqued white fabric 'peels' over the seams and blanket stitched them. For the quilting I just echoed the curved lines of the scallop. There's not a huge border- just straight to the binding for which I'm going to use another Fig Tree fabric from Strawberry Fields. (Some complain that many designers' collections tend to look the same but I LOVE it because I know I can always find something to match those long ago pieced WIPS! :o)
Another bit of fun is that it's raining. Well, the rain isn't so fun. But I am glad to have an excuse to use this:
One last bit of news: Tomorrow I am traveling not-to-far-away with Thankfully Sew to attend
