I'm getting near the end of my mini version of A Bountiful Life.
Before I left for retreat, I managed to finish up one more block AND get the all nine of the finished blocks trimmed to size.
|I'm not sure what those wings on the urn are supposed to be--a Stag-horn fern maybe?|
I sewed the nine finished blocks together while I was at retreat.
Hmmm....maybe I should just make a square quilt?
Too late, since I already had the final three blocks prepared to applique.
I spent the rest of retreat appliqueing my A Bountiful Life blocks and managed to finish up two more blocks! I'm getting SO close--I can see the end in sight!
|These are "red-winged blackbirds in blue".|
I wasn't the only one working on applique at the retreat. These are some of Sandi's blocks, and they are spectacular! She is using true needle turn applique to do Blackbird Design's Bird of a Feather quilt.
|Sandi's background is from the Mary's Muslin line by Windham #26599--gorgeous!!|
