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.
Tonight, 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.
I’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.
