In a holding pattern while the top is at the long arm quilters for basting. Can't seem to settle down in the evenings without that applique to do:o) Trying to catch up on overdue gifts in the meantime & looking through my antique quilt history books for how best to do the handquilting - overall design? Have a neat stencil picked out that will give a defined sashing effect.
I took mine out and am quilting another block. When it gets really hot this summer I'll have to put it away.
I'm working away at the embroidery for the cherry stems on the border, almost 1/2 way through the second border. I went to put the first border on and found that I wasn't very accurate when I trimmed a block, so I have some unsewing to do. Thank goodness is was a block on the outside edge, and yes, it was off enough to make a difference.
Mine is at the quilters as we speak. I will be leaving for a quilt retreat tomorrow and I was so hoping it would be ready for me to take for my shown-n-tell, but I just found out that it won't. I guess I would rather have it perfect that to have her rush. So, she is going to send me some pictures to take along. (sigh), not quite the same thing, but oh well.
