I've got several irons in the fire right now. I'm working on binding the flower placemats and I've dyed matching napkins for them. I'm also finishing labels for the 2 quilts that I finished in January and. in the evenings, I'm crocheting away on the baby blanket. I'm finding that I really an enjoying doing crochet again.
Laura is busily cutting fabric for her new quilt so that when she comes to the beach in May she can get right to sewing. She will leave that project here to work on in May and August when she's back here. While she's using the cutting table I'm in the basement quilting veterans quilts. These two are both from Betsy. Betsy loves reproduction fabric and chain piecing small pieces. Her quilts are spectacular.
Because of the geometric nature of this quilt I decided to add some curves and angles with the star and ribbon pantograph and I picked a thread that would not show much on the next quilt.
This one is also Betsy's and I think it looks like an antique quilt.
Here's how the same panto and thread looks on this quilt.
The back is this nice sky blue. The next 2 quilts are already loaded but my main goal today is to get quilt labels sewn to the January quilts.
