Yes I am finally back to work on the Bow Tie Medallion that has been neglected on the hand quilting frame for over a month. I got back to work on it Sunday night and will try to start working almost every day on it again while I am watching Doc Martin on Netflix.
I got this much done on Sunday and part of Monday –
This much left to do before I am done with the section and I can crank it down a little. I finished this section last night but forgot to take a photo – I did crank it down and it is ready to start.
Also on Monday I managed to finish my first block for the William Morris Applique – Fantasy Flowers – now I need to get a second block prepped. The second block will be totally different colors – some yellows and blues I think. I had a busy Sunday and Monday with numerous projects.
Now that I am getting into the swing of things I must start back to work on the Common Bride also – maybe later in the week?
Several quilters have asked me to show photos of the small plastic storage box that I have for “Diamonds are Forever” —
three layers – for now I am putting diamonds in the bottom box but I will move them to a larger box as I get more of them – right now I have a zillion more hexies to cut so for the time being they are just being put in the middle box, they will overflow to the bottom eventually also. The top thinner box can fit the thread, scissors ect. when running to quilting groups.
Stitch on the lines – this red diamond took just under 25 minutes to make.
