I have said for awhile now – the last several weeks that I really need to get back to work on the wool applique borders for the Postage Stamp quilt which had been at a stand still for awhile now. Finally yesterday late in the afternoon I got two more clusters of flowers and leaves fused to the border. Now for the hand stitching. It is the prep work that can delay me – I will keep putting it off and off.
This area is now ready to stitch.
The border in whole.
I’m think a bird or a few more leaves on this end.
Another bird or two to fill in between the gaps on this end. I will check all of that when I get the flowers and leaves stitched down and decide then. And then it needs to be started all over again on the other border – but at least I know what I am doing now!! Linking to Quilt Story and Smiles from Kate and Esther’s Quilt blog.
All that wool that Pam from Illinois sent me plus the much smaller amount that I had is now all stored in the big project box that the Postage Stamp quilt was in – I took the quilt top out and put it in a basket and filled the box up – easier to go through now. Quit a stash of wool – it is packed full and I had to really lean on the top to get it shut. Thank you, Thank you Pam!!
