Remember my blue HST blocks?
This is part of that quilt!
I love the color combination - that bit of red is just what the blue was needing.
So the shapes were all made on Sunday . . .
pinned down on Monday . . .
. . . sewn down on Tuesday . . .
and the embroidery floss colors were chosen this morning.
75% of the embroidery design has been developed and down on paper, but modifications to the scale and flow in certain areas are still needing to be finalized. I love this part - creating a design, choosing the colors and then eventually seeing it all come to life in beautiful colors.
I really hope to be able to start the stitching on this tonight if all goes well. Of course this will be another one of my long-term projects (I seem to have a few of those!), but this way I never get bored with any one project because I have so many on the go.
I did finish "THAT" quilt (Myra will remember!) on Saturday and I now need to decide if I'm machine quilting it myself or sending it out . . . all these decisions take time!
'til next time,
