I've been plugging away at my "single" sized quilt. The one that will give me that extra warmth that DH does not want in the winter time. I have two more plates to applique and thirteen more small plates to fill in the cornerstones. Plus a wide border with some appliqued vines and leaves....my favourite finish for any quilt.
I've also added to this quilt top. I usually make two squares at a time. I pick out a fabric that I haven't used for a while , cut a couple of squares and use the technique to make the pattern. It's really simple once you make a couple. Good thing, too. I want to get it down pat before quilt guild starts up again. Looks like myself and another lady are doing the programme again this coming year. Since I took it on last year without any preparation, I felt a little inadequate...don't want that to happen again this year.
And....this is the half way point of the quilt in the frame. I must say , I thought I would get really annoyed with the feather pattern I had traced in the blank squares since it was a bit fussy for quilting. But I am enjoying it...surprise, surprise! I'm not certain how I will bind this one. I usually use a scrappy border on scrappy quilts, but this one kind of lends itself to a single colour. It will be interesting to see what colour I decide on.
