Sewed the centre of the quilt I’m now calling Prairie Blossoms…no pic though as it is so dark today I couldn’t take a nice picture if I tried! Thinking about borders and I should finish it up tomorrow.
I’ve already mentioned that I’m on the lookout for my next big applique project…these two are that top of my list. I can’t do both, I don’t think (hmmm)…
Sentimental Stitches announced the new Just Takes 2 quilt for 2013, the Benjamin Biggs Quilt. Wow. Its a wedding quilt, 100 inches square, made in 1848. Very tempting, especially if I made it in non traditional colours. It would be a good chance for me to finally make a very large applique quilt, but do I really want to take on this particular design? I have numerous baltimore album style patterns and each one I haven’t been able to start; and I also have a few bed quilts that I consider “not to be used every day”. Do I really want to add another to that list?!
