I'm so pleased. It's been a busy week, but I worked in half hour chunks several times this week. Not only did I finish the 56 blocks, but I have them all sewn together in an 7 x 8 format. It's ironed and ready to have the borders applied. I'm doing two borders. The first border won't take long to apply. It's a two inch medium green border. The outer border will be a nine inch vines border set on an off white background. The curvy border will sport leaves in various fall colors.
So my goal for next weekend, is to have the bias vines made, and appliqued to the borders. AND have all the leaves made, sewn to the interfacing, trimmed and turned inside out ready to be machine appliqued to the border. I hope to have at least half of the leaves appliqued to the borders.
I'm confident that I'll have this quilt ready a little early for the St. Dunstan's quilters.
I've picked the date that I will make the label. Jan 20th. By then, I hope to have the name picked.
Swirly, twirly, autumn, leaves... are all words that have been swirling and twirling around in my head..
