Last week was so crazy I didn't have time to do a post so this week I’m playing catch-up. We ended up snowed in for most of the entire week so I got lots of work done on my AOTH border. I can’t believe how long all the embroidery is taking. I think I have put at least 60 hours of work on this in the last 14 days. I really do like how it’s turning out. I still have a lot of embroidery to do on the corners. I’m hoping to be done with the border in the next few days.
I finally went and got Dominic’s quilt back from him so I could get some photos of it and show it to everyone in my quilt guild. I’m proud of this quilt because it’s my first original design and a one of a kind.
Last week was the elections for my guild and now I’m the treasurer. Well I guess it’s in my wheel house but sometimes you would like to do a different job for your hobby then you do all day at work.
I also finished the challenge quilt I’m going to put in the quilt show. They gave you a paint chip and you had to use that as the primary color in the quilt and use its complement and have a leaf some ware in the quilt. This was the first time I did a scalloped border. I also did some sequence and beading. I’m really happy with it overall I think it has a very happy feel to it.
Hopefully by next week I will be ready to start quilting. Have a wonderful week.
