Another row done
Good Saturday morning all. Pretty cloudy here in KY - a perfect day to quilt! I've finished another row on Tana's Mom's quilt. For someone who was in her 70's when she embroidered this - I am amazed. Her stitching is even and neat. It is so much fun to quilt this and wonder what she was thinking about as she did this...Maybe like - "WHAT was Tana thinking when she got me this freaking kit to do? A nice wall hanging would have been a lot easier to do...dang that daughter of mine!"
lol Just KIDDING Tana - I've got 4 more rows to do - with luck I can finish this tomorrow. I want to do 2 more rows today - so that tomorrow I'll have an easy day.
Pictures of Row 2
Don't know why this one is so yellow - I swear I didn't spill coffee on it. Hope I didn't jinx myself. Guess I won't be taking anything to drink in my sewing room until this one is done.
I feel like I'm getting the "hang" of filling in spaces with feathers. At first I didn't think I would like this - BUT once again the customer was right. Thanks for the learning curve Tana ! (oops I see Montana has a corner that needs a little more fill. - I LOVE pictures - shows me things my "eye" doesn't see.
