A Finish and Progress
I finally finished my mom's quilt.
You may remember that I bought the unfinished top on Ebay and I did not notice all the wonky squares or the ...
Missed seam or ...
A cut in the fabric until I was over halfway done on the quilting.
I thought of appliqueing a few butterflies randomly and making sure I cover the two places. Below is the fabric I would use for the butterflies. But I have never appliqued. Do I want to tackle applique with a quilt I have grown to dislike?
Sorry not real clear picture.
I also thought I would just whip stitch the two places.
Any suggestions out there?
I am so frustrated with this quilt I just want to wash it and give it to my mom.
I am making progress on the Cathedral quilt. Twenty blocks down and forty to go.
I have been suffering from vertigo for the last week so all I can do is sit. Gives me a lot of time to hand quilt and watch TV. I have watched almost all of the Andy Griffith show, 200+ episodes. Watching these old shows makes me long for simpler times. I would gladly give up TV, cell phones and computers to reclaim family dinner and evenings on the porch. How about you?
