This has been a busy week of continued quilting on the Civil War Bride quilt. I do not really have pictures to show, I am still working on the quilting around the appliques. I have taken some little breaks from the bride. Linda brought over this little baby quilt and these adorable aprons for me to quilt.
The aprons are such a great project for a charm pack of fabric and another yard or so of solid fabric for the bottom border, back and ties and binding.
I also have been embroidering the little blocks for the vintage baby quilt. The pattern is for a baby quilt, but I am going to make two smaller doll quilts out of these blocks.
Finally I have been collecting some red and green fat quarters. I love the civil war reproduction reds and poison greens, and one yellow for contrast. It is hard for me to choose the greens. There are not a lot of the true poison greens,out there, do you go with the olive greens for a light green to add contrast? I am not sure about those two light greens in this pile, the solid looks better in person. I don't really know what this collection will be used for, but I like red and green applique quilts. I am kind of leaning to the Mary Mannakee quilt, time will tell.
