Last week, when I dug into my card-making box, I found a second tree piece that I'd begun to quilt. It was long and narrow, and primarily river. I didn't know what I wanted to do with it, other than to finish it. I doubled the quilting in the water, then thread-painted the batik trees. Then I set it aside.
When I came back to it, I measured it. 6.25" tall. Not large enough to face it, if I wanted to cut off a 6" finished piece, but binding? That would work. I'd already sliced it off and trimmed it, before I remembered my camera.
Vicki Welsh, for your cure for bleeding fabrics!!
This year's quilting goals have fallen by the wayside. If I can just finish this quilt, it will be enough for 2017. I know that I am running out of time, but I'm going to give it a valiant effort. Goals are good, and all that. Putting them in writing? Even better. Here's hoping that I've got something to show you in the not-too-distant future.
