Blue Stars Center Finished!

 The applique center for blue Stars Around the Garden is finished! There are 60 leaves on this applique and they took awhile. After I took the picture, I trimmed the center to the correct size. Now I can start on the sashing.


I didn't even touch the vintage Boston Commons quilt this week so I don't have a hand quilting update but I did finish knitting another dishcloth.

  2. I love your appliquéd center! It's so pretty and nicely done. That is a great dishcloth - it's a gorgeous color of blue, one of my favorites. Does that knit stitch have a name? ~Jeanne
