I finished the center of the rose applique quilt.
Now I will start to add more around the center. The quilt will be about 85 or 90 inches square (the center is 42″ across) so I need to add some more around the center to fill the space. Rose buds will go on next. Here is the layout…the cut out rose is my paper template to show what it will look like.
The stems and leaves will be done with the hand quilting.
Teddy gave it a test sit.
I have another project set to go. My nephew and his wife are expecting baby #2
I bought this great fabric today.
I am looking forward to getting started on it. It should be fun.
The weather forecast is for ice. It started up at about noon. The snow was like little ball bearings bouncing and rolling when it hit the ground.
It is changing to freezing rain now and beginning to coat things, the forecast says we should get 1/4 to 1/2 inch of ice. With high winds and many old trees in the neighborhood This usually means a good chance of power outages.
I think it is a good day for being inside and doing some hand work.
