Shhhh....it's a secret but I don't think I'm revealing too much at all as to the owner of this little quilt.
I've been participating in a mini quilt round robin. We each start with a center block and it gets passed around several times - once for the first border, then the second border and finally the last person does the quilting and binding.
I'm the last person to work on this little quilt so I'm supposed to do the quilting and binding.
But first I had to fix the first border. The first border is the green,yellow,orange-red strips along with some little prairie points. I'm not even sure what that fabric is but I am told it can't be ironed. The strips were not sewn together but were kind of overlapped and in one spot (above) the green fabric didn't meet up and cover the yellow border so there was some green frayed exposed edge. I did the best I could to tack it down but decided to embroider some vines and leaves all around the center block and then added some daisy trim in places here and there. Those daisies covered the frayed area splendidly.
I then added some big stitching on the first border in green and yellow.
Now that that part is finished I've been working on quilting the rest of it with regular hand quilting thread. But I can't show that part yet. It will give away too much. All will be revealed in time! I'm almost finished!
I'm going to join the virtual quilting bee Slow Sunday Stitching at Kathy's Quilts where there's a whole bunch of hand work going on.
