It's growing on me
This, when finished, will be the largest quilt I have ever made. And yes, this is the best picture I can take of it at the moment because. It. Just. Won't. Fit.
I decided that it needed a border of squares of pale blue fabrics. Onto those fabrics I am going to applique vines, leaves and birds in the same style as the centre medallion. Then I think I'll finish it all off with a dark blue border. It will fit nicely over my king size bed with some drape over the edges.
My sewing machine is taking a little service break at present so I'm filling in by hand sewing, hand quilting (which is so bad I'm embarrassed to show it), designing screeds of new quilts, and cutting out fabrics.
I'm starting to get withdrawal symptoms.
