As I mentioned yesterday my stitching time these days is mostly limited to an hour or so in the evenings while we watch TV. My two new hand stitching projects have been great to have around. I usually alternate between them: a flower block, a moon block, flower block, moon block......
For June I have 4 flower blocks to show for my efforts. I didn't want to prepare any other blocks until I saw how these would look with the 2 background colors and blue thread. I'm really pleased! I plan to piece then in checkerboard fashion like this. Quilting will make it even more subtle and it looks like I'll actually have some quilting space on this quilt.
Here's a close up of the stitching. I love the blue floss and I think the red, yellow and green are going to work fine for the centers too.
This week my goal is to get the rest of the blocks fused (with Mistyfuse) to the backgrounds.
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.
