All I had planned for this weekend is cleaning and finishing this quilt. I did clean, but then we decided to put up all of our trees and most of the decorations instead, so I did get the center done and all of the flowers ready! The center is 40 inches square! Once it's quilted, I have some colorful buttons for the centers of the flowers. Can't wait to see it done.
I used black thread for the appliqué which is often the way it was done in olden times. I love he way it looks in the black.
I love,love,love my little tree in the kitchen. It keeps my Hoosier company and looks so cute there. The angel on top needs lights, but didn't come with any.
I am hoping to appliqué the borders for the quilt tonight, then I can assemble the quilt tomorrow night and Tuesday if necessary. Doesn't time just always go too fast when you need it most?
