I checked the quilt yesterday after it had been sitting over night and the ripples were gone, just a couple small ones here and there so it should work out ok for the next border. I spent some time squaring up and then getting beige fabric out of the box to see what is next. I might do a piano key border with all the beige colors and then put the vine over the top of it. Lots of beige to work with and the vine and whatever else I put in will dress it up a bit. It might look plain at first but you need that sometimes when doing applique too. You want the applique to stand out – not the background.
Melanie came over for supper and it was such a nice night out that we sat outside with stitching while talking. I brought my box of hexies out to thread baste more and found this one yellow mixed in with the pieces so thread basted that to and stuck it the box with the colors when we came back inside.
From last nights weather report it sounds like the hurricane will not come to my part of Arkansas, we still might get a little bit of rain on Thursday or Friday but it is looking more and more like we will get none at all which is just fine with me as we have had a rainy summer and the ground is wet enough as it is.
