Yes finally I got back to work on this quilt last night. There really isn’t that much left to quilt on it and I really need to get back to work and finish it up. Last night I got some quilting done. I got started watching a series on Netflix called “Ringer” 22 shows but only one season and it was cancelled. I watched two shows last night while I quilted this area. I think it is an ok show but I think I can see why it was cancelled. Maybe it will hold my interest this week and I can get more quilting done.
Thank you all so much for your opinions on the Bow Tie applique in that one corner. I am going to take those little hexies off – they are just glue basted down so they will be fairly easy to remove. In the book the quilt they are on is a small wall hanging and on this big of a quilt I think they would have to go half way across those borders to look right and I really do not feel like making more of them. I might save these to use for pillow cases to match the quilt – use the hexies for an edging on the cases – maybe, maybe not – by time I get done with the quilting I might change my mind. I actually could toss a few of those small hexies here and there in this corner of the applique – I have a few blank spots here and there
I did get started on the applique Saturday night and got more done on Sunday. This much done, a bit more to go. I do believe I can get these two quilts done at the same time and get one off the frame and the next one immediately on it.
Someone asked what I’m I working on when I get done with these two projects – well I well get back to the Common Bride quilt top and work on that for the winter – also I would like to get all of the Lucy Boston, Patchwork of the Crosses blocks put together and see what it looks like and then I will know if I want to make it larger. As if those two tops aren’t enough, I have a pinwheel quilt that is small enough to go in the hoop to work on. I really would like to make progress on all of these that are waiting in line before I start something new but all that fabric on the shelf is calling my name and I’m not sure how long I can hold out before starting another – hopefully I can hold out until next year! William Morris in Applique is really calling to me loudly – I have to hold out until next year and finish more first!!
