Wall Quilt

I was able to sew for a while and worked on the quilt with the 4 1/2″ squares.  There is just a little more to sew and the top will be finished.  I have sewed several rows and also have the rows of squares sewed and ready to add to the piece.  The white sashing is cut and ready to go.  It’s just a matter of sitting, sewing and pressing.  I have the whole day at home tomorrow so will have time to finish  it.

IMG_1795Tonight, I worked on the wall quilt.  I love to applique, but for some unknown reason, I’m having a hard time appliqueing the pieces down.  I haven’t appliqued for some time but I should remember how to do it.  The big rose was easier to applique than the small rose, so maybe by the end of the week, I will be doing better.

IMG_1794I’m appliqueing with bottom line thread from Superior Threads.  It is a fine thread. Using the proper color, the thread disappears. When I saw the bobbin case full of the different colored threads, I knew that I should find every color that I needed. There is a lot of thread on the bobbins.  I do have to use short lengths of thread which is o.k. as each piece of fabric that is appliqued is small.

Maybe by the time I write another blog, I will have more flowers in the garden.

Have a great day and happy quilting.
