A better picture

Here is the better picture I promised. I won't type up a whole lot today as I've hurt my neck and left shoulder. I'm not entirely sure what I've done, but I know whatever I did woke me up from a deep sleep last night. Ouch!

The picture above is after the quilt has been pressed and the batt and backing fabric are in place, if you look carefully, you will also see the marking lines for the quilting.

Last night I put the first few quilting stitches in before I went to bed. Today I was thinking I would go to the quilt store and get a backing and batt for the 'Sunrise' quilt which needs to be quilted, it's on my list of goals. However, I don't think I'm going to be heading too far from home. Lucky for me it is hubby's day off today and he was able to drop the kids off this morning.

I have a number of questions from people I need to catch up on, so please bear with me, and I hope I can get to them tomorrow. x o x

It is LOVELY! And TINY! I am so happy that you were able to fix the bleeding pink.

Take it easy and feel better soon.

Cheers!

What a nuisance to hurt yourself just when you want to get into the quilting! Hope you feel better soon

Oh Tazzie, it looks just beautiful!! It really is a prize winner I think!!

I feel so bad though, about your neck and shoulder. You must have sat too long in one position or another. Maybe some heat on it??
Hard to be at this exciting part and then be in pain. Hope it gets better soon. Hugs, Finn

Take it easy. Maybe it's just a strained muscle.Those husbands come in handy every once in a while. Enjoy some TLC.

NICE! Love the scalloped border.

Tazzy - it is gorgeous! and I LOVE the scalloped white border on the green. That is very effective. Take care of your neck/shoulder.

Beautiful quilt! The pink as sashing and the green as border are perfect. And I love that scalloped inner border. I never would have thought to do something like that.

Hope your shoulder gets well soon - not nice. The mini quilt is just gorgeous - I love the bright greens and the border. You've got great staying power appliqueing such tiny pieces over and over again :-)

Wow, it's lovely, especially all the shading in the greens. :)

Samantha said...

I'm trying to catch up. This applique mini is gorgeous! Is the green fabric a batik? Is it the same fabric in all the leaves? Super duper.
