The past couple of days, I’ve been working on the baby quilt for my new granddaughter, who should arrive the beginning of December. I’m doing fused applique as i want it to be strong enough to handle hundreds of washings. Kind of slow going, with all the little pieces of the flowers. A few photos of the patternthe fabics (or some of them)and the proceedings.After having to redo 5 of the 24 blocks because I had the background fabric upside down, I am now ready for the next step – sewing all the pieces in place. After that, I will use rayon or silk thread in my machine to add all the stems and vines etc., and then I can start to sew the quilt top together.
It will be good to get my machine out tomorrow and sew again – it hasn’t been used since the end of October, before the movers came to pack up the house to move to Canada.
Maybe a touch of sanity to my “boxed in” existence.
