I'll bet that got your attention!!
I was careless while I was walking last week and wasn't paying attention when I fell. The road wasn't flat and my foot landed on an uneven portion and I went forward, landing on my knees. Oh and I broke my foot! It's a small fracture and I should be good as new quickly. But what a drag! I am trying to be positive--could've been so much worse, right?
The good news is that it's given me a lot of time to sew. I can't go hiking or walking the dog very far. Definitely not getting into my kayak (fortunately it's still a bit too chilly here in Central Oregon for that). So I've put together two tops and have been working on more appliqué blocks!
These are some of the blocks from the Splendid Sampler I did during Covid. It's not even all the blocks; I still have more. I dropped it off with my long-arm quilter friend this week!
I also pulled this out and put the blocks together.
I had a lot of star blocks to catch up with so I got them done and then decided to add another row. I am on the last appliqué block and still need two more stars. I am thinking about the border...I was going to go shop for a border fabric but I'm thinking a simple red border with a purple vine and leaves might add to the overall look. Of course that's a lot more appliqué but I've really enjoyed working with the red and purple. I have a lot of red leftover so it'd be a good way to use it up! It's a fun quilt, don't you think?? What would you do with the border??
My twilight garden center is all ready to finish up. I pressed the last border into place and it's now just waiting for me to finish the sewing! Such an amazing quilt, I think!
One might conclude that I'm an appliqué-er but that'd be inaccurate. I'm not great at it but good enough. I do enjoy it, in all honesty. The "A" word is not a bad word, in my world!
Hope you are all healthy and have a great weekend.
Be safe, be kind and be grateful.
