I felt like working on Huckleberry Hill yesterday, so that's what I did. I specifically left some room inside the basket which I'm going to fill with machine quilting.
I embroidered a little outline stitch around the birds so they would show up a little bit more.
Here's basket #1.
Here they are together. Now it's time to design blocks #3 and #4. I would love to have this finished and hanging by July 4th to show my patriotic spirit.
The fabric line is called Star-Spangled Liberty by Pam Buda for Marcus Fabrics. I added in the yellow since I thought it needed a little pop. Cloth and Quilts in Turlock has most of this line. So swing on down to Turlock and get some while it is still available. This quilt is going to be very fat quarter friendly.
I'm afraid I've succumbed to Mr. Joe's cold. I'm not as sick as he was/is.....but I'm carrying a box of Kleenex around the house with me. I'm afraid I'm going to have to miss all of the Little League games today, and our oldest son's birthday brunch......bummer. I have a busy week ahead, so I'm going to have to lay low and let this bug run its course. Gives me a good excuse to sit and applique my day away.
