A few close-to-finishes?
Quilted!! A couple of quilt tops that have been lingering in the quilt closet...quilted! I am delighted for these quilts, being to this stage. I bought these blocks, I think on e-bay, long ago. AND set them together long ago...then carefully pressed the top and hung it in the closet...until recently! Darcie of October's child had started working for the post office, and recently has decided to return to quilting. So....she quilted these for me!
And lookie!! A hand dyed back from her stash...it is so pretty and soft in real life...the picture does not do it justice at all. Excuse the fold lines...I just got them unpacked!
This is another top that has been lingering in the same closet...time to geterdun! She quilted swirlie circles on this one...
A bigger view.
And the current Primitive Gatherings woolie block. I had real problems getting these wools to adhere...I think my wonder under is old!! I look forward to hand blanket stitching these pieces down.
