So sorry it has been a week since my last post friends! We have been so busy this week I couldn’t take time to chat.. but now I have lots of fun things to share 🙂
Above is a picture of the center medallion of this quilt finished….
Here is a close up of 1/4 of that medallion in my 16″ hoop….
I used a light blue thread for the center medallion… but I plan to use other colors in the flowers surrounding this medallion… not a traditional way to stitch a whole cloth for sure… but then I am not a traditional hand quilter I think! lol
Here are the colors of thread I am starting with … I am using YLI 40 (wooden spools) and Aurifil 28 threads for my quilting pleasure 😉
Here you can see where I am going with the dark blue thread in the flower petals…
So I am having lots of fun with this project!
Meanwhile, I am watching the patchwork of our kitchen floor come together…
These shots are before grouting though… so the lines between the tile look dark… We are using a light colored grout here so it will flow nicely when done… here is the grout going in…
I was the sponge rinsing girl in this process and it sure helped my honey out!!! He is a master at tile setting but is used to having 2 helpers… so he got me this time instead! Oh my!! lol
But we managed and the floor is curing after being sealed… so pics of the final floor layout… and a peek at my fave tile and why coming up in my next post!
Our weather is cooler and clear… think spring break and we are only seeing temperatures in the high 60’s this weekend! OOOPS! lol
So back to stitching for me this weekend… what are you up to this weekend??
