Good Start to May
Every day last week I put in some time quilting DH's Boots quilt. After quilting the majority of the quilt I began detailing the 12 boots. This morning I made it up to the top row of boots when I discovered this. The top of this boot had not been appliqued down. Of course I did make them about 2 years ago but it was a shock when the hopping foot tried to take that piece of fabric out.
I decided to cover this mistake with a curlicue stitching. It took me longer than I expected to detail all of the boots because of the numerous thread changes due to the variety of colors I had used. I must remember that when working on other applique projects.
And early today I completed the quilting of this quilt. I still need to cut the strips for the binding but that will have to wait until I can clear the cutting table. I must figure out how to put things away so they don't pile up where I don't really want them.
Below are two of the several quilt labels I am making. I used to make my labels as I finished my quilts but I have fallen woefully behind. But our guild is having a show in November so I am trying to get caught up.
And last but not least, here is my
design wall today. I decided to finally get busy working on my Celtic Solstice. I had pieces but nothing put together so today I put 5 blocks together and up on the wall. And I seem to have made a mistake: can you find it? I guess I know what I will be doing tomorrow. :-(
I will be linking with Patchwork Times along with several other talented quilters. I never have time to read all the blogs that link there but if you go over there, too, between us we can get them all read. :-) Have a great week, Gari
