Today was the big day. I put my Beyond the Cherry Tree into a box and handed it over to the USPS. Now that's living on the edge, right? I've sent it to Bellwether Dry Goods to do the marking. This baby is way too big for me to tackle that job. After pondering many ideas, I've gone with 3/4" x hatching through the blocks and then angle lines in the borders. I stuck with very traditional quilting for this one.
I've made headway with customer quilts, I'm on the last one that needs to be returned before Christmas. The quilting has been started, the binding is made and I'm confident I'll have these last two in the mail Dec. 3.
My Sandy quilts are still "in progress". One has been returned from my friend who did the quilting on it, I've got it trimmed and have started pinning the binding. This one needs quilting and I will have these in the mail before Christmas.
My blog has been a bit dull lately, doing quilts for others, prepping for hand applique, and doing hand quilting makes for a boring blog. Once I start doing the applique, I'll have some pretty blocks to post.
