Borders are now on the quilt – on to the applique! First I need to cut some bias strips from my brown and make my vines – then I need to look through all my applique patterns in my books (believe me a lot to go through) and find things like little acorns, leafs, maybe a little pumpkin or two? would love to add a little squirrel or something but I’m not good with animals – we well see on that one but anyhow – you get the drift – Fall Harvest – a fall design! it will not have a ton of applique but just gently scattered around – mainly in the corners I think
Each corner is a little different – a four patch surrounded by a strip on all sides to form a block large enough to fit in the corner. ( a stray brown thread not a mark in that corner)
Another overall view. The quilt top is finished at 83 inches square and overall it really lays flat compared to how it did when I put the the brown strip all around!!
Today I will possibly get started on the vine – but I might just work on my hexies instead – we will see – I really must soon get started on the machine quilting for Primary Colors also the raffle quilt that I am making – and the sewing machine needs a good cleaning before I do anything else with it. Please join all of us with our hand stitching over at Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching – I will link up first thing this morning (I schedule post night before so I’m not linked immediately) also linking to Quilting is More Fun than Housework .
