Machine Quilting Monday!
I finished basting the big dresden blocks for my Gardenvale quilt yesterday. I've been basting one or two here and there so I didn't have too many left.
And then I moved on to baste the six half blocks. I used only batting scraps to do all this basting - and that is a happy thing, indeed. And I used all stash (black/white) fabrics for the backing. Another happy thing!
And there you go - 16 full blocks and 6 half blocks, basted and ready.
And you know I couldn't stop there. I quilted one block for good measure. I'm doing a free motion Spirograph type design on the center and stippling on the background. I'm going to enjoy quilting all the other blocks, I know. It was good to be back behind my machine!
I did get out yesterday afternoon for a haircut and followed that up with a trip to the grocery. Today I'll be home and I plan on getting more sewing done. Maybe I'll get the final borders on New Bedford? We'll see.
Have a great one!
