Shocked!! Yes, another post. Well, today is quite a dreary, rainy day. I decided to brighten by day working with bright, cheery fabrics. I am following the lead of Tanesha, "CraftyGardenMom" and plunging into the LMS BOM-Birdie Stitches. Here is a pic of my background.
The background didn't quite turn out like I had planned. Now, yes, it does work and I like the final results, however, it wasn't planned this way. I hoped to have solids in each corner to have a distinctive solid 4-patch. Now I have 4-patch blocks in random areas! I will be using #8 Pearl Cotton, more than likely in a purple for most of the embroidery parts, sprinkle in accent colors here and there. Keep checking back to see my progress.
I received by quilt back from having it quilted. The quilting was done at the Missouri Star Quilt Co. It is a pantograph design. It was completed in less than 3 weeks. The only thing left to do now is binding! Not a big fan of binding. I will try my hand at machine, but will practice first before tackling the quit top I would highly recommend them if you need a quilt quilted. BTW, my quilt was featured on their blog August 2nd.
That is a little glimpse of my day. Until next time..............
