Hello August and Welcome Sunday Stitchers too!
I have been mega busy this week… as has my honey! This week I loaded my big frame….
Above there you can see how we have decorated too.. my honey is an excellent décor manager! lol
I not only got a good start on Debbie’s quilt in the frame…
I was blessed to receive these needles from my good bloggy friend Gretchen…
The size 7 needles take a minute to get used to because they are big but for large diameter thread you need a good round needle opening and a round shaft… both of these things I have with the DMC needles 🙂 Thanks Gretchen!
Above is what I will use to mark the heart of this quilt… if you missed the finished quilt top last week here it is….
I haven’t touched the wholecloth quilt this week but I promised you a photo so I took one..
The PVC frame is sitting in my sewing room at this moment. I am trying to gauge on a normal quilting week how much I may get done on my Hinterberg frame … hoping 1 roll a week or so 🙂 All this hand quilting I am linking to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching HERE <<<<<<
Most of this week I have been playing around with a shadow quilt design and construct… it will me a machine quilted lap quilt… I am using a free pattern and YouTube video by Donna Jordan of Jordan Fabrics called Shadow Box you can find HERE <<<<
Above are 4 rows of 5 so I can do a quick test on separating colors and intensities of colors in this group… don’t want all the blues or oranges together 🙂 I love these fabrics though… This quilt fabric lot was gifted to me by my daughter and her fiance…. for my birthday… I will enjoy this quilt when I get it built!
I didn’t show you the finished swing Rick redid…
I love this photo … you can see our colorful begonia and fern that are soooo happy here on the front porch.
And look how many blooms are on the daisy… Rick waters the ferns every night and the other plants every other night… but we have found our daisy loves hot weather and lots of watering 😀
Time to finish these blocks to I can put this center part together!!!! Have a wonderful Sunday whatever you do and wherever you are… you decide how your day goes!
