The seasons continue to be in a bit of a battle with last Saturday’s temps in the glorious upper 70s which, then, gave way to rain overnight and into Sunday. Today begins with rain (it really is needed here as moisture has been lacking for a long while) and some serious wind conditions. BUT, it is the perfect day for………….quilt guild meeting!!!!!! There will be photos later, but this little cutie is one of the items I will be sharing. My “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” watermelon wall quilt is now complete! (See here for its beginnings)
Such a fun project and, like “April Showers”, is an exercise in using paper-backed fusible web and blanket-stitching on the edges of the pieces.
I outlined/echo stitched/SID using Fil-tec’s Essence ‘Smoke Gray’ nylon “thread” with Connecting Threads Essential Pro Poly, 70 wt, in the bobbin. The “ant trails”/meander was done with black CT Essential Pro Poly in the top thread, also. And, for the finish, a quick photo of the backing (always necessary!!!)…………… Now, is this not the most perfect fabric???????
Picnic weather is sure to come but not this week, as temps will hover at 30F at night and the 50’s for the daytime. But, while I’m waiting there’s much quilting business to be taken care of. Stay tuned.
Thank you all, once again, for your wonderful visits and taking the moments to leave a few words. I treasure them all. Have an awesome week…………………………hugs……..
