I have not completely finished a quilt in a long while, but I have a couple little projects completed.
The above wool quilt block is my part of a charity auction quilt my small group is doing this year for our local quilt guild. The quilt is from a 2005 series in Quiltmaker magazine named Home and Harvest by Erica Kaprove. I did the blanket stitch applique on my sewing machine and used DMC wool floss for the embellishing embroidery.
I have also finished another border of Auntie Green's Garden and sewn the first two middle borders to the quilt center. It is getting too big to capture in one picture very well.
Some of my stems are a very light green so the flowers look like they are just floating in mid air from a distance but on close up the soft lighter colors give a nice variety.
I think I am just going to leave it because I don't intend for this quilt to hang on a wall. I have started the bottom border next. There are five sections of flowers along the bottom so that will be my hand project for the next couple weeks.
I have also finished the Chubby Chicks top. I have the back pieced so it is ready to layer and start machine quilting.
My projects are lined up and waiting so to the sewing machine I go. Happy Stitching all.
