I finished piecing the Interplay blocks . I need to decide on a final layout before I sew them all together. Sometimes it is hard for me to see what they really look like until I take a pictures. For some reason I get a more objective view in a picture.
I will trade the peachy blocks with the lightest blocks ….. they actually are not as light as they show in the picture but I think the balance will be better with them in the center.
I bought some thread for hand quilting this….and I have backing fabric
The mottled black at the top of the picture is the backing fabric and the thread is #8 perle cotton. I will do big stitch hand quilting on this.
Now that I am nearly done with the piecing (my absolute least favorite part) I am going to let this one sit for a few days while I think about what quilting design I want to use.
Meanwhile I can get back to work hand quilting the rescued Star quilt
I should have it done in a few days.
And I will also be working on hand quilting the applique quilt
and the Lily quilt which I had planned to have done in the spring
And I have backing batting and thread to hand quilt the top made from the vintage blocks
Yikes that’s a lot to do…..better get busy
Teddy was upset because he didn’t get his picture taken today.
He was so funny when I put the camera away….sort of pouting. Here is Teddy looking very serious but happy now that he has his picture taken
