the “Moore Love” donation was one of the topics covered in my post at the beginning of June (found here). This delightful piece was on my machine today. To refresh your memory, this is what it looked like at the time of the previous post……
And here are some photos of today’s progress:
I did mark portions of the design (with wash-away marker), for placement, using parts of some stencils I borrowed. The floral/bunny areas have some thread sketching/outlining of the flowers, leaves, etc. I am using Aurifil thread in a pale yellow (wonderful to work with!) and will switch to another color (not sure what, yet!) to do some color accent areas. So far, I’m leaning towards a small loopy leaf pattern on the pink outer border. We’ll see. I’m planning on completing the stitching tomorrow and squaring it so it’s ready for the binding on Friday afternoon. Friday morning will be “fill in” hours at the pharmacy. This quilt will be a donation to the “Moore Love” project (see button on sidebar) organized by the Oklahoma City Modern Quilt Guild for those who have suffered so much during the storms/tornadoes earlier this Spring. All quilt donations and $$$ need to be in their hands by June 30th so there’s no time to waste!!!
A beautiful 81F sunny summer evening here in S.E. MN. Now, off to relax after a wonderful stitching day. Hugs…..
