Tulips All Around is Finished
Pieced, quilted, bound and washed! I quilted tulips (what else?!) into the blocks and the borders. The two inner borders have little tulips quilted in them and the larger outer border has double feathers quilted in it -- was dying to use the stencil I bought a few months ago. ;-)
I also added the raw edge applique that the pattern called for -- the leaves and the centers of the pieced tulips. I wasn't going to, because I'm not that fond of the raw edge stuff, but the quilt really needed it.
Glad to have it done and have just pin basted an ufo to work on -- need to get at least one ufo done yet this month! It's a small one, so hope to have it finished tomorrow.
1. The rain -- after 5 straight days of weeding I needed a break and the weather cooperated.
2. The hummingbirds at the feeders -- they buzzed me three times while I was planting impatiens for them to enjoy and weeding under the feeder in the front. A little impatient, I think.
3. JR's not fighting me too much when I give him his meds.
4. Lunch date planned with a friend -- gives me something to look forward to this week, and time to plan my week around it!
