The machine quilting is done and the binding is on ‘Winter Solstice’…I still need to do some big stitch quilting to give those big open spaces more interest….
Notice the Valdani thread, needle threader and needle are tucked in a bag, ready to roll…and can you see the shapes that I drew in preparation for stitching….
I am ready to put the binding on my Jan Patek free Moda Blog Hop pattern ( geeze…I need a better name for this quilt!) The big stitch quilting is almost finished…I just need to figure out how to quilt the outer edges…
I forgot to bring the binding fabric from home and this is the best that I have…(see outer edge…) Good enough…unless I find something better in my travels.
I am finished stitching the wool applique of the Old St. Nick quilt…Man, these are big honking applique pieces! One more tree trunk to go…see the pin…
Next up is to put on the HST borders! They are prepped and ready to roll…maybe they will go on TODAY at CLUBHOUSE QUILTING!
To totally appreciate these pictures, you need to know that I was outside this morning at first light, in my fluffy pink bathrobe and slippers, with camera in hand, hair all matted to one side…no make-up on…yup…SCARY! Do you KNOW how many people are out and about at that time in an RV Resort?…A LOT!! Who knew?! I’m sure they were wondering what the crazy lady was doing taking pictures of her table in the wee hours of the morning! haha…let’s keep them guessing! Oh, the things I do for this blog! :o))
So although nothing is finished, progress is being made! Sometimes it feels like baby steps….sometimes it feels like giant leaps but I do love the process. I get such satisfaction from each step…be it big or small! What about YOU…are any steps happening in your camp?
Have a Wicked Wednesday and Happy Stitching!~P
