update

snow-017I  know it’s been a while since my last update… but I have been busy… not working on this “sort of” crazy patch so much.. actually I am in the middle of finishing up a queen size quilt top and alternately piecing the back from floral print blocks…. and kind of working on piecing the back for this one… lots of stuff at once.

kind of squirrelly

I  like the way that you can hide holes or gaps with some extra stitching or an applique…. this little squirrel scrap has been kicking around aimlessly for a while and fit just perfectly over a big gap….

I am not really loving the extra stitiching, but as with all things, it will probably get easier, more fun and better looking as I get used to doing it…..as with most of my quilts, I can get most of it sewn together and add on embellishment later…. I’ve been sleeping with the moon quilt but haven’t finished all the quilting or the binding yet.

no new in nine
