Luckily there is always my Life is Beautiful for my "in-between" times...
It's always good to have many projects just waiting for a bit of attention, isn't it!?...haha!
I never feel that this embroidery is pushing for attention....it's purpose in my life is to just be there when I need something a bit different to work on. I'm sure one day it will become a beautiful quilt.
My stitches on these blocks are not always the prettiest, but they are always the best I can do on a given day....and that's ok.
Like I've said, my Quilty365/Year in My Life will be soon done and the question of borders for this quilt will come up.
I came across two fabrics the other day that I'm sure I bought over ten years ago, thinking they would make a nice border....some day.
I've auditioned them in this picture....
I'm not sure if they are perfect or if they look dated. Opinions are most welcome!
I've switched up my "leaders-and-enders" for the time-being. I have almost 400 of my 5" Nature's Neutrals blocks waiting to be transformed into a quilt...
...so I am going to sew them together into "fours" to make them more manageable on the design wall. (An idea that I remember from a friend, thanks!)
I'm sure by making these neutral blocks my leaders-and-enders they will go together in no time! To find out about what leaders-and-enders are all about, you can read about it here at Quiltville.com.
We're in the middle of a baby boom around here lately. Our fifth grandchild, and second this year, was born this weekend!
....and now we wait patiently for the New Year, when we will welcome the twins into the family!
I am linking up with Kathy over at Kathy's Quilts to see what others are working on for Slow Sunday Stitching.
