I was very productive this morning while the kids were away at a sleep-over and I sewed together the last of the houses! Then I just couldn’t stay away and I added the border throughout the day as the kids came and went. I feel a great sense of relief that I can move on to the next stage on this. It also means that I can change thread on the machine and sew together some fleece for a background so that I can photograph my quilts myself. I have a Birthday gift or two I should make as well, but I had been putting them off because I wanted/needed to focus on the city. Big project: little stuff: serious art: crafty fun…
The city has moved to the floor:
I Photoshopped together two halves so you you could see it better, but holding the camera over my head made a blurry picture. Maybe next time.
Now I need to decide if I’m going to hand quilt it, or use the machine. Either way, it will be pretty simple, geometric lines. I like the idea of hand quilting as this quilt is all about the human element, but I can only give it a few months time, so I just don’t know. It would be a nice hand work in front of the TV project, but then again, it’s still awefully hot here to have a Queen sized quilt on one’s lap.
