I'm still humbled by the positive feedback on the Redbird and Berries Mini Quilt. Not only on my blog but also on the Moda Bake Shop post -- thank you all so much. I tried my best to keep up with replies on the comments but a few things got in the way -- Soo many of you were "No-Reply" Bloggers and did not provide your email address in your comment :( Please, please, if you've never checked, be sure to check to see if you are a "No-Reply" blogger. Click here to see one of the many great tutorials for "No Reply" blogger syndrome. Thanks again for all of your fantastic feedback !!
On with the Work in Progress....
I'm working on completing a pair of wool appliqued, envelope backed, quilted pillows. The last two nights I finished the pebble quilting on them. I still debating on doing an outline or stem stitch around the wool pieces using Pearl cotton - not sure - what do you think ?
Teardrops of Love - a needle turn applique tutorial". Sorry about all the wrinkles... I haven't pressed it yet :(
Finally... Redbird and Berries in Wool is ready to be layered, basted and quilted...
One other thing I wanted to share -- for those of you that LOVE applique, please stop by and visit my friend Wilma from the Netherlands -- she blogs here at Quilting Willempje. Her most recent post shows the lovely handwork she has done on Esther Aliu's Love Entwined 1790 Marriage Coverlet. You have to see this -- oh it makes my heart skip a beat - just beautiful!!
Lastly, here in the Northeast, we had a foot of snowfall overnight. This is a view out to the barnyard.
I'm thankful that I can work from home most days -- no trekking into Campus for me (thank heavens).
Happy hump day all!
