The vines and leaves are all machine appliquéd. Before I sew them on, I wanted to try out a couple of options. The original pattern has the vines growing from 2 corners only like this.
I wanted to see what it would look like with a vine growing from each corner so here it is laid out.
I think I like the designer’s suggestion better. Which do you like?
This morning reading Leigh’s blog ( http://leedledeedlequilts.blogspot.com/ ) started me thinking about my UFOs. With our guild challenge last year, I finished many UFOs; more than I would have without the challenge. Leigh says she has trouble finishing things. I finish many quilts but I also have many unfinished. Sometimes when I have a big project like the King size floral pinwheel quilt I am working on, I get tired of working on the same thing every day and I need something different. That is one reason I enjoy charity sew days because I can work on a different project and yet I am doing something useful.
