Slow Sunday Stitching and Take 21
First and foremost ...
Since there is some of the binding fabric left, I'm thinking maybe I could make some hexies and circle the flower ? Yes ? Or add some green leaves ?
"Take 21" is officially a quilt!! This is my DS1 's quilt for his 21st birthday ... which was last September. At least he's getting it before his 22nd birthday lol!
91 X 73 inches - machine pieced and
hand quilted with leaves all over and two lizards ... for fun!
Here is the famous backing that needed some "last minute readjustment". You can see the "add-in" in this picture.
About this backing, now that I am looking at it, the label I made for it a long time ago doesn't look very "comfortable" on it. It looks kind of out of place. I don't like it. It's too white on white.
The top left fabric is exactly the same green as the dots in the backing. The fabric on the right is the one used in the quilt and the center fabric is just a touch less aggressive than the one on the right. (It doesn't bite your eyes out if you know what I mean.) Okay! What to do ? I will ponder over it as I'm getting diner's ready.
Regardless of my decision, this will be my slow stitching project this evening, embroidering the names and attaching the label (that may have some more hexies added to it) to the quilt. That sounds like a perfect evening to me.
I am linking with Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching. Join us and see all the lovely needlework projects people are working on.
