My Design Wall



























It's a small quilt: 24-1/2 inches square for my stash busters class. I wasn't able to make it to class when we got this pattern so I'm not sure I did it right. I am not good at reading and understanding directions. Much better when I can see a finished product. The embroidery is called redwork. It's supposed to be done with several strands of red floss. I couldn't find any of my embroidery thread but I did find some other thread that was multi-colored. I like the affect. Class is on Wednesday afternoon so will have a chance to see where I went wrong.

Tomorrow I'll add the batting and backing and then quilt it.

It's going to be 106 today so I'm miserable with the heat. I just don't do well. July is usually the worst month; that doesn't start until Wednesday. Oh well, one day at a time and pretty soon it will be October.

no no
only October for your part of the nation. :)
I dread it.
Our winter was so long and terrible I can't even think about October. But, I'll think of it for you. ;)

Beautiful work on the quilt.
Love the colors...
