steps in the right direction
After adding enough to call it good, plus a black & white border to rein it all in, I'll find a piece of batt big enough and machine quilt this one and call it done.
Spending time digging into Denise Schmidt's more contemporary designs made me wonder about long arming and I can see how someone, somewhere decided to take a quilt off the bed and hang it on the wall just to gaze at.
I'm still procrastinating about sewing these pieces together so I started a little oil crayon study that I'll elaborate on during my shift this afternoon.
I'll also be going through the stash and selecting juicy single, one of a kind pieces of cloth to post at
Random Acts of Dyeness.
I spent most of saturday morning learning the trick of adding PayPal buttons to the offerings there.
I hope I did it correctly! Please let me know if I screwed this up!
