I've been quilting up a storm lately! I hung this wall hanging in my bathroom to cut down on the glow from my insane aqua paint. It's Tisket A Tasket by Bunny Hill Designs. It was one of the very first applique projects I ever did by hand. I think #2, in fact. But, I never quilted it properly because I hadn't tackled that particular skill yet. So, having it in my throne room... made me realize it was past time to finish it properly.
I did flowers and loops in the outer border, fat loops in the inner border, ribbons for the sashing, hearts for the setting squares and swirls in the main block background.
I really enjoyed revisiting this old friend. At the same time it was nice to see how far I've come in my applique skills. Not that I'm admitting to anything but, dang, some of it's pretty rustic.Weekend before last, I was at our Mascoutah retreat again. Always a good time! My focus was to finish Bethany's graduation quilt Shoe Shop Girl. And, I did it! I'm either 2 years late for high school graduation or I'm 2 years early for college graduation. You decide, I know which one I'm claiming...There were still 3 blocks to make, then assemble and add borders on the first day.
I also made a money belt for my vendor booth. Didn't think to take a picture. I'll try to get one later, maybe. Talk to you soon!
