I had Williamsburg Beauty on the dining room table yesterday glue basting diamonds down getting it ready for applique.
Looking at it from this angle I thought it would make a very pretty tablecloth!! I had to pull the table out to it’s full size to have room to work on it.
Back on the wall while all of the glue dries. Maybe I will start the applique later this week? If I have enough brown I will be putting a brown border around for the next round and we will see where it goes from there – a ways off though as I want to get all the applique done first. I am linking to Monday Makers today and Em’s Scrapbag and Beth’s Cooking Up Quilts, MCM#45.
I did sit down last night to work on The Final Frontier and I should have gotten that last area done so I could roll it down today – we will see. This is pretty much as you saw it last – just the final couple blocks on this last area closest to the end needs quilting before I roll it down for the final time I believe
Besides finishing up the quilting on that area I hope sometime today to get more of the 7/8 inch hexies cut for the Handful of Scraps. I still need about 20 large hexies unless I decide to make it larger – then probably about 30 of them – I will decide that later – I had decided to not make the applique border that is shown with the quilt so it is either make more hexies or design a border to go with it.
I have run out of room for display and it is hanging on the edge of the quilting frame most of the time.
Yesterday I finally got the flower bed completely dug up, I think I got all the roots and plants out of it and I’m ready to plant tulips, lily of the valleys and the Crinum bulbs that I divided – some of course will not be planted again in this bed – but moved further away from the house to another sunny area. I hope to get that done today so I don’t know what kind of progress will be made in the quilting room.
