well…an almost finish. It still needs to be quilted by the talented PaigeAlaine and binding added. And let’s not forget any embellishments and embroidery I see fit.
All of my borders are finished and on time. I’m really proud of myself. With everything I’ve got going on with work, family & guild commitments, I stayed on track and did it!
I worked until midnight the night before to get all of my embroidery work finished.
Our final border task was either a cross block or hand applique and the color choices were peach and sunshine yellow. I started out wanting to do the picket fence idea but it was looking a little ‘chunky’ and all of the lines within the ‘cross’ were conflicting with the seperating borders I added. I thought about the hexies I had finished but they were too small and I thought the quilt needed some more curves. So I finally decided on an orange peel hand applique.
And I decided all of that only 1 week before it was due y’all! Yes, I’m a glutton for punishment and my poor fingers hurt but the pain was worth the gain!
I’m completely satisfied with my overall choices in borders and my color scheme.
We have until the September meeting to be completely bound and ready for display in our local quilt show at Countryside Flower Shop in Crystal Lake. I can’t wait to see all of our quilts proudly displayed.
