A little bit of sewing that makes me think of spring. I was trying this out for a baby quilt....not sure yet.
Ok now my rant about Daylight Savings Time....why did they change it to so early in the not-yet- spring? It was finally getting light in the morning and now we are back to darkness. It is too cold (and snowy) to be outside in the evening to enjoy it. Maybe I am just cranky because I lost that hour of sleep......not to mention it has thrown off my day completely!
This is the center of the wedding quilt I made for my son Colin and his wife Jenny. The applique was coming off and I procrastinated about how to sew it back down. Obviously the silk thread did not hold up and trying to applique the pieces on an already washed quilt was not appealing either.
The veins were machine quilted by the quilter and I decided to free motion around the edges of the leaves. Looks good and I know it will not come apart. Problem solved! Now they will get it back in a reasonable time and before the babies are born!
