Today "kicks" off football season with the first college game of the season and that means that it's hand sewing season for me. Last year I used football to finish the hated Cathedral Window quilt. This year I'm going to work on the inner borders for my applique quilt.
This is the first border almost done. I made a little progress while we were on vacation last week. I'll get that left stem finished today and start the second border.
This quilt is such a joy to work on compared to the Cathedral Window. It's not nearly as bulky and the blanket stitch really brings it alive.
I wasn't sold on the center dot when I planned it but I'm glad I stuck with it because I think it's really cute.
I'll probably post weekly on this project just to keep myself accountable although I'm really not having any problems staying motivated to do it.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
