I started this QOV top Friday afternoon and finished it up this afternoon.
This quilt begged for a little custom quilting. With every quilt I learn a few things and this was no different. I needed a ruler to go around the stars. I was too unsteady without. I am using my rulers more and more.
This weekend I focused on getting Celtic Solstice quilted. I free formed feathers all over the top. It was a marathon to get it done. Halfway through I did a little gardening, clearing all the wooded flowers from last year. I also started prepping a new area for a small veggie garden.
Inside picture this morning when the light was perfect for showing all the quilting texture.
Outside in the screen porch.
With back exposed, more orange. a perfect complement to the front.
This quilt will be traveling to someone very special. I know they read the blog...
As for today I am slow stitching outside in the sunshine enjoying the warmth and blue sky.
Block one of the Benjamin Briggs quilt. I have been doing a lot of this especially when the power was out for 12 hours. This one is done except for the center. I am thinking about putting a bird in the center (just to be me).
The start of my second... All needle turn appliqué.
A view out my window through the blinds. See the cardinals in the tree?
