This quilt is becoming a favorite. I'm falling in love with my previous enemies, 30's prints. I've discovered a deep love for these dirty pieces of fabric.
What I think I like is the softness of these colors. The reproductions seem to have too much color for me. But I've had an epiphany. Why not tea or coffee stain the reproductions till their colors soften? If I do this, I'll let you know.
Anyway back to the quilt. I managed to complete all the stitching in the ditch. Next up, an actual era appropriate quilting motif.
I'm going to take my time and do the best job I can.
Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
Oh and I had another epiphany, I quilted my monogram in the middle Dresden. How cool is that?!
Of course when my Daughter came home, she renamed my initials into Something bad and dirty. Kids!
Yeah I laughed, but I'm none of those bad words.
Between quilting, I baked three applesauce cakes, an apple-cranberry pie and a loaf of bread. Boy did the house smell wonderful!
Today I've been working on a few stars. More about that tomorrow.
Take care, Brandie
