I have been doing hand appliqué on my "anniversary quilt" for many, many hours this weekend! This is my progress:
Despite my best efforts, my leaf tips need a little work? The best part of this project is the preparation of the pieces for the process, I thought that I would find this part tedious, but I really enjoyed the hours I spent turning the edges under with the starch , double freezer paper method!
I need to quilt a lot of other projects this weekend, so I am off to do those!
My BFF is a planner! For that I am most grateful! You see we travel together once a year, for her to run a half marathon, and I cheer her on! She plans all sorts of site seeing adventures that always include quilt shops for me!
I have also really enjoyed making the hundreds of leaves and berries for the borders! The spray starch method of turning the edges over before I appliqué them down has been my favorite part, even as time consuming as it is! I watch my detective shows and work the day away!
In fact, I loved turning those leaf edges so much, I started another blue scrap project, I believe is called Joseph's Coat!
This is certainly a labor of love! I hope my hand appliqué does this quilt justice!
Made this tablet cover b4 Vday, but forgot to post!
And a "dime bag" I made for my niece (a purple lover):
The big win was My SON-IN-LAW's:
He took first place in his class and overall in his division:
That man can do whatever he set his mind to do, and do it best! I am so proud!
