If my eyes hadn't gotten tired last night, I would have stitched on the 9 more pieces that will complete the medallion motif in the center block of my quilt top. But sometimes you know when it's time to stop. So there are 191 pieces appliqued on the fabric and those 9 more will be done before the weekend is over.
For any new readers, this quilt top is appliqued with flowers made from vintage aprons and housedresses. My goal is to make something beautiful to honor the women who toiled to make happy, healthy, beautiful homes with clothing that was once theirs. (Note: only aprons and dresses that are not in good vintage condition were cut for this project.)
This is the center block after last month's FNSI......
And this morning......
I'll be starting the corner blocks this week. They each have a bouquet of appliqued flowers, much smaller than the center medallion.
A grilled cheese sandwich with a spinach and tomato salad made for a satisfying start to the evening. There was an extra bonus of being able to have the doors and windows open, letting in that fresh air to push out the staleness of winter. By the way, for anyone in the northern U.S. and Canada: there's supposed to be an extra bright and large full moon tonight. On the radio, they're calling it a "Super Moon". Watch for it tonight!
Later today I'll be blog-hopping to see what everyone was working on last night during the March Friday Night Sew-In. There are a lot of inspirational crafters out there.
Have a wonderful Saturday :)
