…cos I feel like blogging not working.
I’ve been continuing with this quilt over the last couple of months
but before I show you how it’s evolving I want you to see how the 1800s Sunburst is looking now that all the blocks are together.
We all know what a nice feeling it is when the last bit of stitching is done on a quilt top. And this one was no exception…that was a lot of hand pieced circular blocks! The applique petals were very quick to do though and now
it she is all ready for the quilting machine. I’m not in a great hurry to quilt her though…I’m still mulling quilting ideas over in my head.
So back to the Connecticut quilt and when I left you last I was pondering whether the baskets would stay or go…Thank you for all your kind and encouraging comments, I really appreciated the input.
I did decide to keep them, but they needed a little *attention* so I took them off to neaten them up…
…and in true Libran style I changed my mind and they didn’t go back on.
You see I’ve always liked these little Peony blocks.
I’m just finishing the last half dozen or so blocks at the moment and then that will be a border complete.
This is how it’s all looking so far.
There’s still a wee way to go with it…more borders of course. But sooo nice to be moving forward with this after a long hiatus.
Spring is in the air here and it was lovely to spend an evening in the city with my darling daughter recently…drinks, ballet, dinner.
I had fun making this photo collage of our evening.
thanks for visiting,
