You'll be seeing more in the near future. Don't you love the little checked flower center? It felt good to do hand work all day yesterday. I find it very restful selecting the fabrics and preparing the pieces for applique.
All of the fabrics are from the Past Endearments line by Judie Rothermel for Marcus Fabrics, which will be in quilt shops very soon. The background is called Aged Muslin. I'll add some embroidered touches after I finish stitching this one down.
Lots of flanges in this quilt. More to come over the next few weeks. I finished what I needed to finish on Friday for this quilt
Almost half of this quilt is partially together. The blocks are stitched in rows, but the rows aren't sewn together......just in case I change my mind on placement. I'm happy with the overall look on the outside edges. I know exactly how I'm going to quilt this one too......which is unusual for me to know so early in the process. This quilt is a testament on what can be done with scraps......that's why I named her Lil' Orphan Scrappy.
Have a super weekend. We are getting rain.....a nice soaking RAIN!!! California is desperate for water. I'm a native Californian, and this is the worst drought I have experienced. On that note, let a little rain fall on you today, save it, and send it to me.
