Last January I masked up and did a little shopping at Yoder Department store in Shipshewana. Of course I browsed through the quilt books and magazines to see what had happened in the quilt world since I had been isolating at home.
I'm starting this quilt, for now I'm only going to make 4 blocks and see if I enjoy this applique project.
I didn't want a white background so I have selected a soft yellow Kona fabric for the background. I couldn't decide if I wanted a soft yellow or a brighter yellow. I'll make 4 blocks once and then decide for sure. I took this photo of the end of the bolt so I can remember which yellow it is!
Don't you just love this border? I'm not sure about those little tiny leaf branches though. I'll decide later about adding them.
I know how I want to hand quilt this beauty when it's completed, but first I have to finish all the applique!
