And I have something on my wall.
I am trying to decide how I want to set my Snowbound blocks from 2010. And I am seeking your input. Here they are with the snowball blocks I am using. But this is not the way I originally planned.
Here is my original plan using sashing and cornerstones (EQ7). My problem is that I really like what I am seeing on the DW and, of course, it would be a lot easier to put together. What do you think?
Also on the DW, way up in the right hand corner, is the beginning of my March Journal Quilt. I started it late last week but got sidetracked by the UFO that had been “yelling” at me to liberate it from the box it had been sitting in for at least the last 6 months (see it here).
You see I got all the borders appliqued and the stems didn’t meet like I thought I had planned. But this weekend I figured out how to finish them to my satisfaction. However I must say it is not easy to applique flowers when they are now on a queen sized quilt top. And here we are with the applique borders completed.
Next came the piano key borders. Actually, I have them done and they now are on the top, also. I even staystitched the outside edge so nothing will come apart while I am waiting to be able to quilt it. I spent most of Sunday putting the backing together. This quilt is made with 30s repro fabrics, not my favorite. So I used all of the larger pieces that were left over so it will be a scrappy backing but will be the same fabrics that I used on the front.
But I don’t want anyone to think that I haven’t been enjoying the beautiful weather we have been having. I have been spending part of every day outside, reading. What a pleasure that is. And yesterday I found this:
This is my first rosebud of the Spring. Isn’t she beautiful?
