Not much time spent outside yesterday – it started out kind of warm and continued throughout the day. The plus side is the garden is starting to produce and I have a few zucchini and yellow squash picked – green beans are covered in blossoms and I can see tiny green beans beginning. Several tomatoes are now light orange as well.
The version of the disappearing nine patch that I showed yesterday didn’t quite have the look I wanted so I changed my mind and turned pieces a bit and ended up with this – this is not the final layout – this is just slapping them up on the wall while I am making more! I will go with baby size or couch size and if there are leftover blocks from what I already have cut they will go towards a baby quilt. This is just something easy to use up some pieces, not think a lot about it and have another quilt put aside for when needed to give away for a charity type of thing.,
Thank you Vicki from Color Ways by Vicki Welsh (formerly Field Trips in Fiber) for sending me a package of Misty Fuse to try out with the wool applique. I tried it on this cluster of flowers and they are all pressed down while I am now working the embroidery and they didn’t fall off all day so maybe it will work – the needle is not sticky in the least. When I get done with this cluster I will update on how I liked working with it – thank you Vicki! I am linking to Kathy’s Quilts: Slow Sunday Stitching and will be getting in some embroidery stitch time and maybe some hexies as well.
Two sides of the binding are now finished on Winter Wonderland – yes it is a wonder that I will ever finish it – I have just not been sitting that long lately to work on binding and it is too warm outside to drag this out there on the porch. It will get done but there has been no rush – this is a winter quilt design so have no desire to get it on the bed right now.
Wagons West continues to have progress I do sit almost every evening to do some hand quilting.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend. Has anyone taken one of Edyta Sitar’s Craftsy classes? I’m wondering if I should get one – her newest looks interesting.
