A Well Furnished Living Room
It was about the third day of "flooring" when I told my mother "We should have furniture and watch tv in the living room tonight." Furniture...yes....TV...no! (And yes, that is the OVEN by the back door...couldn't get to the crockpot either. Thank goodness the phone could dial take-out.)
So glad that this is now the path I take...
|Notice the pug in lower right. He is glad for the finish too!|
The quilt is also finished! I call it Backyard Blooms because of the hand dyed fabrics that I did...well...in the backyard! The actual pattern is from Bling Bling Blooms by Annie Unrein. It came as part of a tutorial from Superior Threads.
The tutorial was for Charlotte's Fusible Thread.
You wind the bobbin with the thread; sew around your applique shape; cut it out and then fuse to the background fabric. The great plus was being able to cut away the background fabrics.
I really could see the shadow of the black borders from the front before cutting the excess fabric away. It was however, the scariest thing I have ever done!!
I think I am for only watching programs that are broadcast in blues, greens and a touch of orange. Don't you think Daffy was a perfect accent for my quilt!
