I took advantage of the rainy morning yesterday and sewed. I have made good progress on the dogwood blooms. In the directions Annette recommends stitching the curves after sewing the blocks all together. I do not want to manipulate a large quilt top to stitch the curves so I have been stitching the bloom curves for each block. They now look more like blooms.
When I needed a break from dogwood blooms, I decided to stitch a small sample quilt for a JoAnn Fabrics beginner class. This version of the “Hole in the Barn Door” block is taught in Quilting 101. I made scrappy blocks and quilted simply with the walking foot – mostly in the ditch. I just need to add binding and the sample will be ready to display for Open House on Saturday.
Hope you have enjoyed some rainy weather.
