I've been up at our cabin to check on my mom this week and was able to get a little sewing done. Sadly her dementia is increasing and her placement in the memory care section seems more appropriate. On the positive side, she's a healthy as a horse! Hates her hair to look gray! And wants to lose a little weight. At 91 yrs old! She's always been really skinny but gained a little weight since she's been fed three meals a day the past year! ;-)
I put the borders on this wool applique project; this is the one which will have a gazillion tiny (1/2" fin) half square triangles. This is the center which still needs a few more flowers. I had to wait until the borders were on to sew down the flowers, which go into the border.
There are 12 wool applique blocks which circle around this center medallion. There are also wool applique cornerstones throughout. It'll be gorgeous when it's done--and I can have my favorite LAQ do her magic.
Speaking of that, I picked up my latest finished project from her yesterday and she did a phenomenal job, as always. This was the Cheri Payne top I had sitting around a few years waiting for a border.
You have to see close ups of the blocks to appreciate her work. All the blocks were quilted differently.
I really appreciate her skill--I'm struggling to try to quilt the doll quilt I made for the Humble quilts swap. Sandy gave me some ideas, which seemed so simple when she described them!
I've also been working on my Pam Buda mini for April. It's almost done. I tried Wendy Reed's potholder method of quilting the little blocks individually. I only have one more binding to sew down and it'll be done. Hopefully these two projects will be done this weekend, before the end of April! TADA!!
Hope you're enjoying the spring!
