Scraps and Quilting
Moving right along. Every time I got tired of quilting on Henrietta I would work on these blocks. Now they are done and I have begun adding the sashing.
And, Henrietta is quilted (earlier individual blocks can be seen here).
When I had all that empty space it was really hard to not quilt feathers. Funny thing is that once I learned how to quilt them I want to put them on everything.
I did little freemotion shingles on the roof and curtains on the windows.
And this is the last block. I put a vine of leaves, lots of different leaves, to go with the acorn.
Today I hope to get the binding on so it can get hung before the end of the month.
Lots of people have been making lists of UFOs, WIPs, etc., but I don’t because I hate to feel pushed by my project friends. However, what has happened is that they, along with scraps, have taken over my studio and there is no space to work anymore.
So…..on May 1st I am taking a week long break from sewing/quilting and I am going to devote my time to cleaning.
Part of my plan is to relocate all non-quilting fabrics to free-up space for quilting stash. If I get a lot done, I think I will put in some time sorting my scraps.
I will be linking up with Patchwork Times so everyone can see all the wonderful work quilters around the world are working on.
Have a great week, Gari
