Ditching - check. Applique stitched down - check. Whimsy added - check-ity, check, check!
|Sweet, appliqued flowers are dressed up with stitchery.|
Each flower is different, so the quilting is varied, as well. Motifs have been repeated here and there across the quilt to create cohesion, though - I like to repeat something at least three times to make it look like it belongs. Echo quilting will finish these sections, and then it will be time to decide the next step.

This quilt should have been finished by now, but every time I get on a roll, I'm interrupted. The interruptions throw off my groove, and it's hard to get my head back in the game, ya know?
Ah, well. Some weekend quilting will keep things moving forward. :-)
My main interruption is very exciting!
(See, it's not a bad interruption - on the contrary! It just takes time and energy away from quilting, is all.)
There are at least eleventy-billion (I'm sure that's a real number!) house building decisions to be made every day. Some are urgent. Some are for later so materials will arrive on time.
We have walls!
The framers worked their buns off getting ready, so the exterior walls went up like magic this afternoon!
(My husband texted photos so I could see the process without being there - I was quilting!)
|Oh, ya!!! Wall going up.|
Forward motion is a beautiful thing - especially when it happens in giant leaps!
