Today was the first day this week that I worked on a quilting project. I am making myself a dressy white skirt and I hemmed some pants for my brother. After helping Mother with breakfast, I have been a volunteer at my church Vacation Bible School. It has been several years since I helped and decided to this year. I assisted in the craft room, which was fun.
A few days ago I bought a great green thread to use for the machine appliqué. It is Mettler silk-finish cotton. I am doing a narrow blanket stitch (1.5 wide). This afternoon I finished stitching all the leaves and vines on the 2 pieces of side border. Here is a close up. I’ll take another photo to post after I sew these on. I am considering adding leaf veins as part of the quilting.
