I've been working on two new spring/summer season wall hangings to use in our living room. (Although with the weather we've been having, there may not be any rush to get them done!)
This one is about half quilted and should be finished within the next couple of days. If nothing unforeseen comes up, I plan on spending a bit of time this weekend quilting.
This one is all set with the backing and batting, but I haven't gotten the three layers sandwiched yet.
When I do a scalloped edging, I normally don't cut the scallops until I've gotten all the quilting done on the piece. But I wasn't feeling really confident that I could get the scallops to come out satisfactorily so I decided to cut them before I did all the hand quilting and then ruined the piece by botching the scallops. (No, no, not that I've ever done anything like that. Nuh-uh, not me.)
Papa Pea and I were getting close to attacking the wood pile in the back as it was just about free of snow . . . and then our April showers in the form of snowflakes came. I may squeak in more quilting time than I thought I'd be able to because more snow (oh yes, 'tis true) is forecast for us over the weekend and through Monday.
Rather than being concerned with getting new spring decorations out and about through the house . . .
. . . perhaps I should just pull out this five foot long quilted piece I made for Papa Pea's classroom years ago and hang it for the indefinite future. (Or maybe that would be tempting fate and just encourage more snow?)
But the snow is a good thing. We need the moisture in any form . . . and it gives me more quilting time. Hooray!
