Here it is! ....and more to come ;)
It was a bit humid, but with a fan blowing across the room I was able to keep cool and put the last stitches in the applique floral wreath quilt top. It's only been hanging around since....oh, mid-January. For anyone who has not been by here before, the applique pieces are all from vintage aprons and housedresses that were not in very good condition. My goal was to make something of beauty from the utilitarian clothing that women wore while making a happy, healthy home for their loved ones. It will be a coverlet or lap quilt size, and I will be doing the hand-quilting this winter. Here are photos after tonight's Friday Night Sew-In.
