Spring and summer flew by with lots of family/friends time by the lake. I’m looking at the first snow of this season and am happy to be inside today.
I’ve finished the Bird Dance by Sue Spargo finally! I began working on it in 2016. The outer border is made up of 90 different embroidered circles designed by Sue Spargo and led by her on her Instagram feed as the world reacted to Covid 19. I enjoyed every bit of the embroidery/embellishing very much.
I must confess that I’m not happy with my quilting lol! I was in a rush to quilt it and fighting a head cold and that is never a good combination. For some reason I thought two layers of batting would be a good idea. (Note to self-not) This made it much too thick since the quilt is made from wool squares. And the wool fabric moves while quilting which made it hard to have accuracy. But I’m going to leave it for now-perhaps in the future I will remove the border quilting and try to improve it. Live and learn right?
