Phebe - finished!


Phebe is finished and ready to go to the machine quilter!


But not before I redid something that's been bugging me. Do you see the red appliqued diamond shape next to the red dogtooth border? The pattern recommended appliqueing this shape but I never could get a really sharp point so ...


I paper pieced the diamond shape which I think looks better. Unfortunately, it didn't always meet the corner so nicely in the other blocks but I've decided its OK.


So, the backing has been pieced and tomorrow I'll be meeting with Jan, the machine quilter. I'm looking forward to seeing her ideas for quilting Phebe.

I've already been looking around my sewing room to see which project I should pick up. I'm afraid there is no shortage of projects to keep me busy!

Until next time, Mayleen
