I've started hand quilting Nearly Insane. The first outside border is quilted but you can't see it. I'm glad I decided to quilt a cable and not feathers.
Here is a close up of the quilting. This cable stitches very fast.
And a picture of the cable from the backside of the quilt. I laid on the floor to get this photo. That floor is really hard! The next photo of the backside will be when this quilt is finished and off the frame.
The zigzag border is also completed.
A close up of a corner.
The prepping progress on Star Dance hasn't gotten very far along. I have been doing some preliminary sewing for the quilt I want to piece at the Jane Stickle retreat in ten days.
Since I don't have applique to work on in the evenings, I got out the Darlene Zimmerman embroidery blocks. Sorry about the dark picture. I had started this block earlier this winter (it sure isn't spring here anyway!)and finished it last week. The roses were originally supposed to be red but I didn't want red roses so I changed the colors to suit me.
