Today I go to the Wednesday quilting group where I'll be working on the "The Witch Is In."
It was basted (actually pinned) this morning on the kitchen counter and is going to be hand quilted. It is only 18 by about 36". I'm thinking of using embroidery floss to quilt it -- maybe two or three strands. I plan to outline each letter, and the hat/shoes part. I may also put in some swirls of wind or some such thing in the empty spaces. I do not plan to quilt on top of any of the appliques. I'll keep you posted. The next picture will come when it is all done. And, yes, I made the binding in advance. It's hanging on a doorknob ready to apply.
High winds today -- gusts to 40 miles an hour. We had one flash of lights off and then right back on. The leaves are falling like a heavy snow. Hopefully, no trees fall on our property . . . especially not on the house!
I leave you with a photo from Pennsylvania Quilt National 2009 show. I didn't record the maker but he/she did a wonderful job on this quilt. I particularly like how color was used to create a secondary box within the main square. Wow. It really sings!
Happy Quilting All!
