I am really and truly overwhelmed with all the support you have all given me! The hundreds of supportive comments from my post yesterday meant so much to me … My heart is full and I thank you all!
Today I worked on the Teddy Quilt
I had most of the quilting done but had to finish up Teddy.
I needed to add some more shading and I used crayons….which might seem really odd, but they actually used crayons for tinting quilts way back in the 40’s and they seem to have held up so I am using them here. (and then quilting over it heavily)
here it is after quilting is nearly done
Next I will wash it (by machine on delicate) then lay it flat to dry, then trim it and square it, and last bind it. I will use more of the gold silk dupioni fabric for the binding.
He really prefers the quilt in this picture because he is allowed to play rough with it ….
