There has been a lot going on in the sewing room over the last few weeks. I am over half way done with my Farmers Wife Quilt. I have started to assemble the rows as you can see here. I have two more rows ready to add, but have run out of design wall space (big sigh here).This has been a fun project to work on. The blocks have gone together nicely. I plan to use this quilt on my bed and intended to just have it quilted in an all over design, but when I see the setting triangles it makes me want to have it custom quilted – wouldn’t half feather wreaths look great there and have the sashing quilted down the middle?
I finally finished up my cross stitch project Enchanted Alphabet. Here are a couple of quick picture that I snapped as I was rushing off to the framers.
Yesterday I picked this quilt up from the longarm quilter, I thinks she did a great job. Love those feathers in the sashings. I think I am going to bind it in red to pick up the colors in the border. The picture looks a little faded, the greens are more olive tone than they appear. This was a block of the month designed by my friends Betsy Chutchian and Betty Edgell. I have had it done for well over a year, but it hung in the closet waiting to be quilted.
I started my spring house cleaning and decorating this week. I hope to finish up tomorrow and have the weekend free to sew.
Until next time.
