Friday's Focus...A Crafternoon
My focus this Friday (and Saturday, too) is to complete the quilting on this beautiful quilt. All of the block areas are complete, as well as the cloud boarder that surrounds the center blocks. What is left to be done is a running leaf motif that will trail along the remaining boarders. I'm so close!!
Initially, I planned to machine quilt this particular quilt, however, it just didn't happen. When I ran a test quilt run the patterns were not coming out rite- I absolutely didn't like the way it looked. So, back to my personal preference; hand quilting.
Once the quilting is complete, a printed dark binding will surround the edges framing in the whole quilt. The final touch is to add some tabs for hanging (as was requested by the quilt owner). Truly, I can't wait so see this pretty thing finished- it's beautiful.
Enough chattering already, I have quilting to do!
