Phebe - progress!


I've been working on my version of Phebe lately. Decided I needed to buckle down and just do it and ... well, Jan (the machine quilter) is holding me accountable under threat!

I finished the main applique portion of the left side border and am now working on the leaves in the right side border. I've decided to try the back basting technique which is working better but the small leaves still seem to be pointy in their middle sections. Room for improvement, for sure.

Even though I would dearly love to work on them, the selvage quilts and the Pine Burr quilt will have to wait until I've caught up on Phebe. My mother has not been doing well lately and my quilting time is limited. Hopefully, a medical solution has been found for her and my schedule will return to "normal" soon.

Until next time, Mayleen
