I finally finished a top I made in March. "Get It Done!" is now Done! Here's what I posted about it back then.
I would have much preferred to hand quilt it but wanted to "get it done" so went ahead and did it by machine.
The sunlight streaming in the bedroom showed the triple line quilting both vertical and horizontal.
I also quilted in-the-ditch around all the sashing.
I used a variegated red thread only because I had it :)
Rachel gave me the fabric I used for the back when she moved about 5 years ago. Thanks, Rachel! Look close because the black lines are the handles and spouts of various pitchers.
I washed it in the machine, dried it on delicate for about 15 minutes and then let it finish drying on a sheet. It's 36" x 36".
Anyway, "Get It Done!" should be renamed "Got It Done!" 😊
I have this large antique wooden bowl on my dining room table that is filled with all kinds of things: pine cones, dried black walnut hulls from our NJ trees, dried lemons, hickory nuts, acorns, rag balls, sweet gum tree pods and the most recent addition--gourds. There's still room for a few more things. Maybe I'll add some apples :)
We had our first frost last week and look at the sunrise just beginning . . .
. . . and this is it full blown. It doesn't look real, does it? The whole mountain range was ablaze with this autumn color!
That's all for now :)
