I feel like spring is rushing by, so much to do. I have accomplished some stitching this week which surprises me because my schedule is full!
My April UFO finish is ...
Pumpkin Peel from the book Small Pieces, Spectacular Quilts
written by Mary Elizabeth Kinch and Biz Storms. I used blue bias binding which I don't think you can see very well in the photo.
Here are some photos of the machine quilting done by Jan Hutchison.
This is a large wall quilt, nearly 80" square. For now, I plan to store it on a spare bed because I'm already seeing fold lines just from having it folded since getting it back from the machine quilter.
After seeing another blogger's progress, (Quilts...etc.), on her Love Entwined quilt, I was inspired to get mine out and start appliqueing the stems for Part 6.
I had previously taken off the heart wreath on the left in the photo to try to make the points sharper. Not sure I'm making a major improvement but it looks better to me.
Serengeti Oaks is at the machine quilter and I should be able to share it with you next month.
I also continue to big stitch quilt on my Jubilee+5 quilt. I can only manage to stitch a few blocks before my fingers are too sore to continue so its going slower than I'd like. You'll notice the bird is still there. Embroidery starting soon!
Until next time, Mayleen
