I couldn't resist! I already own a bucketload of perle cotton. I had never planned to hand quilt Lollypop Trees, but once I had the first row basted it simply called for it.
I did machine quilt in the ditch first to stabilize everything.
What fun! I find this process SO relaxing. I'm not worried about perfect stitches. The pattern itself is folk art inspired and I think my quilting should be in the same vein.
I have to be careful with my perle cotton balls... Cooper would love to steal them. He's tried several times. I try to remember to put them inside a box when I'm not using them.
I have a few household chores today and a couple of errands, but I'm sure I'll have time for sewing, too.
Hope you have a fantastic day!
