|Quilt Top So Far|
Thank you, everyone, for your very kind comments to Dancer's post, yesterday! I love how you all play along.
I attached one more border (the solid blue border) to the quilt, today (ignore the starred background - it's the back of the scrap quilt I have on my bed). I'm using the borders as visual breaks between the different types of patchwork piecing. I guess you can say that I am growing my quilt from the inside out.
The next row in the quilt will need a little more "framing" before I can attach them, so, that's what I'll be working on, next.
In addition to playing with fabric, I have been doing a little housecleaning, tended to the garden with M when he was here on Wednesday and kept in touch with family and friends. I am also getting ready to put in an order for groceries to be picked up, tomorrow.
I'm grateful for:
- Water for the garden
- M's help with the garden
- Fans to keep me cool and the electricity to run them
- Dancer's help with the quilt making!
- The fabric stash
Joyful activities have included playing with fabric!
Plans for tomorrow include picking up groceries and tending to the garden with M.
How is your week coming along? What are your plans for Friday?
I like the way the quilt is looking.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Anne. :)Delete
I really enjoyed Dancer's guest post yesterday. Your quilt is looking good.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Eileen; yes, Dancer has been known to pop in and post from time to time! :D The quilt is coming along nicely, isn't it? :)Delete
I like the way you are framing the different sections of the quilt. It pulls everything together.ReplyDelete
Thank you, June. Yes, I thought that the borders will help to tie it all together. :)Delete
So pretty. RegineReplyDelete
Thank you, Regine. I'm looking forward to using it, this winter!Delete
I love the way that quilt is shaping up with the different sections all defined by borders. It is most attractive.ReplyDelete
I visited my friend yesterday and I helped her to look up places she knew in England and "walk" past them on "Streetview". It was fun for both of us as I now know what they look like, having heard her describe them in the past. We had rain all night long but it stopped partway through the morning. The plants are happy. It's quite cool, but supposed to warm up again soon. I'm dressed warmly.
Thank you, Bushlady. I thought that the borders will help to visually bring some order to the quilt.Delete
What a fun activity for you and your friend, to "visit" and "walk" through places in England that she recalled.
Sounds like the weather is starting to change for you. It's still warm and sunny, over here; no rain in the forecast!
The quilt is looking good and the addition of the borders helps tie it all together. Is it looking how you imagined it?ReplyDelete
It's coming along well, isn't it? I honestly didn't know how it would turn out! This isn't a quilt I planned in advance. At first, I thought I'll use the disappearing nine patches around the center, but, I had made too many of them, so, I used the smaller squares I had cut out and used those, instead, until I had a rectangle big enough to use most of the disappearing nine patches (there are about 2 or 3 leftover, which I will use as part of the backing). But, I am definitely pleased with how it is turning out. :)Delete
Your quilt is coming together really nicely. Your use of the framing is a nice touch. All of the colorful fabrics are really nice.ReplyDelete
I'm looking forward to seeing the next part once it's added.
Thank you, Debra. The borders/frames help to keep things sort of contained, don't they? They give a place for the eye to rest, I think. I added two more strips to the quilt, yesterday and the next step is to add one more row all around and I think that would be enough to finish the quilt, with one more border all around. :)Delete
Thank you, Stefania.Delete
The quilt is looking amazing - you obviously benefit from the supervising paw of Dancer!ReplyDelete
It's coming along nicely, isn't it? Dancer is such a big help with these things! :DDelete
