This piece was one that took me a good deal of time to finish. I had it all the way up to the borders and decided to meander them. I am not a free motion quilter, so that chore demanded a good deal of effort to get it done. Funny, while I still don't think I did a very good job of it, once a couple feet away it looks pretty good.
I had this piece quilted by Rachel of Stitch in Color. She and her family have since moved to the Netherlands. I really like it and think it screams spring time.
Vines and Berries is done. I quilted it by stitching in all the fern stems and some vines in the leaves. Lots of threads pulled to the back and buried in the batting, but I love the results.
I also finished up my Sequoia Sampler, well at least I though it was done last Wednesday afternoon. Then I looked at the bottom border of half square triangles. Yeah, I sewed them on up side down. So Wednesday night I picked out the stitches and sewed it Thursday morning back on again properly.
Much better, now to get a back made and start quilting it.
My youngest grandson Ben had a bit of company at pool side. Colonel Sanders decided to join him relaxing on one of the pool lounges.
