Is it just my imagination or is time whizzing by faster than normal? I looked at the calendar this morning and realized (much to my surprise!) that September 1 is not that far away.
Amy and Bruce are getting married on September 1 and I still have a fair amount of quilting to do on their quilt. Let’s be honest, there is a lot of quilting left to be done! The bottom right hand block still needs to be done, as well as the the borders. And it will need a binding…and a label….yikes!
I love putting hidden gems in my quilts. I found a fabric that had little sayings printed on it. I fussy cut 4 of the words and stitched them in to a flower on each border.
I used a Frixion marking pen to mark the quilting lines. I was thrilled to be able to mark the quilt top and not have the marks disappear before my eyes while I stitch. Brilliant!
Speaking of brilliant….. Solar Iced Tea!
Fill a large pitcher with a 8 cups of water. Toss in 6 tea bags and leave in the sun for 6-8 hours. Easy Peasy!
Til next time…….
