With such a little bit left to work on finishing the Winter Wonderland quilt – only 3 squares left to do yesterday – I did one here, one there and finished late afternoon. It went on the frame February 18th –3 1/2 months of work – with two weeks off for my eye healing after surgery in late February – so lets round it off to 3 months of work – 130 hours of quilting. Here it is laid over the bed, I still need to get the binding on it and then the hand stitching – I will take another photo when I am done. I really am in no rush – I hope I do not put it off – even though I am in no rush I do want it done. I will measure it after washing and drying – should be around 96 x 100 or so I think if I remember right.
And here is the next one on the frame!! much smaller isn’t it, it only took me 30-40 minutes to get it on the frame — Wagon’s West.
And I got started on the first bunch of flowers on the Postage Stamp border.
It was hard to get a close up for some reason – I think I took 4 and the lighting was finally ok on this one.
A question! What kind of fusible do you use for hand work? I was told Soft Fuse – it is an easy product to work with but it does not stay in place well – you press it with a hot iron like you do with all fusible’s but I find it comes off very quickly and doesn’t stay on well. I thought it was permanent. Shouldn’t it be? You iron, and by the next day it seems to be falling off!! I am working by hand with this so you want your needle to slip in and out easily which it does – but the fuse should be helping it to stay in place also. What brand do you use?
