The Postage Stamp quilting is done – now on to the binding this week. I spread the quilt out over the bed to take photos. The quilt will be washed when I get done with the binding. I laid the quilt out over the quilt that is currently on the bed so that couple inches of light green that you see at the bottom of the border is from the other quilt. Large white spot at the left of the photo are from heaven knows what shouldn’t be there.
Some of the quilting on the back of the quilt. I at times changed the direction of the zigzag lines going down the patch work just for the fun of it so yes they are not all going the same direction. Linking to Em’s Scrapbag today and MCM #69 and Love, Laugh, Quilt and Esther’s Quilt Blog.
The patchwork – more photos in a week or so when the binding is done.
Also this weekend the main part of Murrieta Stars is complete – now on to the borders for this one – this measures around 63 x 76 right now – I think hubby likes this one he thinks it is similar to an American Western Indian Blanket . I will continue to work on these two quilts this week and maybe they will both be done by the end of the week – Then on to other things!
We worked on the Apple Tree this weekend – took the fencing down so we could tear out small trees that were growing around the area and a lot of weeds. The tree had grown so we needed a wider area for the branches to grow well. Here are some of the apples that I tried to get a photo of last week.
More fence stakes put in the ground in a wider circle, a ground cloth of a weed preventer put down first then lots of mulch.
The new fencing up to protect from the deer and whatever else might like apple trees.
