I have been pulling fabric for the Bird of Paradise block in the Civil War Bride quilt. I have been back basting the blocks in the quilt so far, but I am using a combination of techniques for these tail feathers, a little basting on freezer paper, a little glue, etc. It is coming together, I found some old Jo Morton fabrics with some great poison greens that fit in with the rest of the civil war era fabric I have been using for the quilt.
I started quilting 6 table runners for Linda, she has been very busy sewing since school has been out. I love this little block in the green quilt, it is so interesting, reminds me of puzzle pieces. The second tablerunner has some very interesting finishing techniques. The corners are folded in to make the points, and the batting is sewn in, so just quilt to finish, no binding. Very simple but very elegant tablerunner.
The ripping out of stitches I spent all last week working on is finished -YEA! - and the circle applique quilt is resting quietly on the "waiting patiently to be quilted pile". I am glad that is over and I am
Happy Stitching Again...
