Accomplishments

I'm feeling good about yesterday's work!  My Interpret This piece is finished.  It was very simple to construct once I finally had an idea of what I wanted to "say,"  so it went together quickly.  Reveals begin March 27.  Look at the blog for some hints of what people are doing with that doll photo.


With that cleared away, I  sewed the borders on this little give-away piece that I began assembling at the end of February.  It's made with orphan blocks, framed using Sharyn Craig's ideas.  I'm very happy with its bright cheerfulness, and am looking forward to practicing some free-motion in the spaces of those blocks.  It's a size I think I can manage.  The quilting can be done after I finish the baskets.


Yes, I gritted my teeth and sewed together all the rows on the basket quilt.  Now just the  borders from the focus fabric are left, and the top will be done.  Maybe I'll do that today.  Notice the ray of morning sunshine falling across the quilt--spring!

Your quilt says "Spring!" more than anything else I've seen in the past few weeks. I love it!

Your basket quilt is pure loveliness. There's variety and a strong unity that keeps the eye moving to enjoy the whole quilt.

Have fun with machine quilting. That's a good idea for practical practicing.

Oh Kay but I love your give-away piece. And I'm intrigued by Sharyn Craig. This idea with the border's grabbed me. I am making a mental note not to forget this. I LOVE IT. Now I'm looking forward to the free motion quilting, too. I love the center block. That pops!

Glad for you the basket quilt is done and I love the photo with the sunshine. Happy! perfect.
