I have been working really hard over the last week getting projects all caught up. The house and dog sitter is taken care of and husband and I are off for a Mississippi River Boat cruise from Memphis to Nashville. There is a stop in Paducah too and we plan to go to the National Quilt Museum. So will not be back for the 2 weeks.
Early this past week I got the last of my BOM May's Garden Party Down Under vase and flower block completed.I joined it with the March and April blocks.And now have all five months completed.
Last week I appliquéd the upper white petal on my Alex Anderson neutral quilt project. I was not happy with it, as there was no contrast and it just sort of faded away. It was suggest by one of the ladies that replied on my blog that I might try doing the stitching in a darker cooler. So I un-sewed the blanket stitching and appliquéd with a light grey thread. Much better!
So I have one of the three appliquéd rows complete.
The Dot Quilt came back from the quilter early this past week. The binding is on and that project is finished. It is just 48" square, so I put a hanging sleeve that matches the backing on it I can keep it or give it away as a quilt or wall hanging.
