It's been raining cats and dogs here in California which translates into perfect weather for quilting. Tell that to my dog Mazey who needs to get out and run with the wind and kick up her heals. I've been hard at work on my new design called Prairie Flower.
I'm machine appliqueing the flowers and leaves which is a new technique for me. Since this is going to be a bed quilt, I wanted these little guys to be securely nailed down.
All of the Double-X blocks are finished and the directions are written. I had quite the assembly line going during the football playoffs and finished these puppies. I followed my own directions, and guess what? I found two boo boos.
Here's a sneak peak at just a portion of the quilt. I still have more borders that need to be added. One of the borders in another pieced block. So, I'm FAR from being done on this one. The fabric is called Conestoga Crossing by Pam Buda for Marcus Fabrics. I love Pam's style. This quilt can transition nicely from Fall into Winter in my house. Of course once I finish making it, the quilt will hit the road and start traveling. My quilts get out of town more than I do!
I hope you have good quilting weather in your neck of the woods. You know, it really doesn't matter what is happening outside......it's what's happening on the inside that counts.
