I love how the different fabrics add texture and fun patterns to the collection.
I am using each fabric once...I may need to raid my friends' stashes soon to add more variety to my plus sign collection. Which plus sign is your favourite so far? I like the bikes!
I pin basted my Elephants on Parade quilt this week and started quilting it tonight. I quilted one row of elephants with horizontal wavy lines...this is one of the fancy stitches on my sewing machine. I love the texture that it is creating.
I am using a pale yellow Auriful thread top and bottom. The backing is a soft gray flannel with white polka dots.
With any luck, I will quilt another couple of sections tomorrow afternoon.
I have a couple of secret projects underway at the moment. One is a Canada 150 challenge for the Elgin Piecemakers. The big reveal is later this month. My piecing is done so I need to get it quilted this week and complete my project. The other project is a commission. I have lots of things going on to keep me busy and out of trouble these days. For those of you that read last week's post about me having the "crud", I am happy to report that I am feeling back to my normal self! It only lasted 4-5 days and then left the building. I am glad to be back to my normal energy level and activities.
