The Final Frontier is coming to an end. Yesterday I got the dining room table pulled out, cutting mats taped together and got it squared up – then the binding was machined stitched to the front and hand stitching commenced! The room had such a yellow cast to it yesterday morning – we had a cold front come through – when I first got started on this is was raining a little and the sky was darn right yellow – then it turned gray and very cloudy and rained. The yellow disappear from the sky and we had a half inch of much needed rain – and the temperature dropped – was 68 in the morning when we got up at 46 when we went to bed. (Usually if the sky is yellow you think bad tornado weather but that wasn’t in the forecast – just a cold front and rain coming through. Between the lighting in the room and the sky the room looked yellow.)
When I did my stitching on the border I drew a white chalk mark 2 1/2 inches from the inside border and did not quilt beyond that – that was my line to square up to.
Melanie came over last night for supper and some more binge watching of the Walking Dead – we are on last years season still – this is the piece she is working on off and on – a large table covering.
A close up of her stitches – I put my metal stick on thimble next to it so you could see the size.
Two six inch squares with baskets complete – I will be trying to do 2-6 a month or I will never get done. Linking to Tweety Loves Quilting today.
Looking through some books a week or so ago Melanie came across this quilt that she really like and thought she might make some thing like this with stitches – not sure just an idea for now – no pattern in the book just the photo.
It came from this book – one of my older ones – copyright says 1991.
