In addition to exploring (by bicycle? Is it one of those places where we can all rent bikes and get along just fine for the week? I hope so!), I will be relaxing with some new quilt fiction that I ordered just in time for this trip,
and with some hand quilting. I was hoping to have my String Star Bee quilt completely assembled and ready to quilt for this trip, but so far, I only have 2 rows together. Last night I sandwiched my Orange Creamsicle quilt
|Remember this one, made from vintage linens?|
Last night, I also finished the quilting on my little pink and green doll/baby quilt. I'll definitely do the big stitch with embroidery floss quilting again - it was fun and quick. The binding is sewn onto the front, and now I just need to hand stitch it down on the back and it'll be completely done. I'll post a full picture when that is done, but here is what I did with the big white spaces on all four sides of the quilt
|No flash so that there wouldn't be a glare and you could actually see the quilting.|
and for the little white triangles in the borders, lots and lots of french knots.
|OK, taking decent photos of quilts is HARD!|
|I wish this were bigger to I could use it myself!|
