I finished sewing the applique, stitched some minimal basting, and now I'm working the hand quilting!
Here's the thing -- I've only ever hand quilted practice pieces -- so I'm a bit green at this !
I took my first hand quilting class - "Hand Quilting Sharon's Way" more than a year ago! I guess doing this piece, (that will be framed(thankfully)), is a good way to get re-acclimated to hand quilting.
On a separate note -- I finished the blind stitchin on the binding of the "Horse Quilt" and it turned out wonderfully -- I just love the gold - it sets off all the beautiful colors in the quilt. I will post more pictures of it later - but feels good to have it done. Sure miss those horse friends of mine !!
Have a wonderful day everyone -- and thanks for stopping by !
