Whatever form it takes this year
I wish you a peaceful Christmas
and prosperous New Year
Quilting and gardening have quit a few things in common. One of them is trimming. Which I seem to be doing a lot of.
Inside and outside.
At least we had a little rain over the weekend . The garden was thirsty. This azalea flowers like crazy every year. I originally planted five but only one survived. She sure makes up for it.
The sky yesterday was ludicrously blue. The temps a delightful 23 degC. A perfect day in my book, especially as I managed to finish this.
I've given this quilt a name - Dandelion Kisses. There is a stylised dandelion print on the border fabric and the crosses are often read as a kiss.
That certain person didn't get her act together and instead played with these.
I hope you and your loved ones are safe - we are seeing some dreadful images on the news about the wildfires in California and the devastating hurricanes in Louisana and Texas.
The top is finished. Those borders look wavy but that's just the way it was hanging. There's nowhere to hide when you use white fabric.
Gee, those seams stick out like . . . . there's a phrase. Never mind.
I was planning to use a white backing fabric but I'm not all that confident about my free motion quilting so I think I'll go with a print of some sort.
Next weekend, we quilt! Well, I quilt. You know what I mean.
