for the month of February, so cold here, snowed in with ice too...I accepted a quilting challenge from a cousin, and spent the entire month piecing this complex quilt top together. I finished it yesterday (the top, not the quilting).
Meanwhile, my poor knitting sat unattended.
Do I look sufficiently guilty?
Each applique was fused onto a square with paper, then machine embroidered around each flower....so much work!
This is the center square, and I must pat myself on the back for getting all four corners straight! (I am NOT a sewing expert).
Reason I abandoned knitting for this: I felt that my logical brain needed more exercise, and I wasn't getting it with my knitting (fingers too arthritic). Perhaps I should join a quilting forum, but can't find one that isn't toooooo big.
Anyone know of a quilting or sewing forum which is as nice as this knitting forum? (not that I'll ever give up knitting).
