The last 2 blocks for Hearts and Wreaths are finished!These pictures were taken in the basement on my display wall. This is the first time the color of the background yellow shows anything close to it's true color!
Now I need to find time to trim them to size and sew the 20 blocks together. These blocks are for the center of the quilt. I need to prep the 4 borders and embroider the vine, then I need to cut a million leaves and applique the borders! The border leaves are a larger size than the center leaves.
Update on Welsh Beauty questions from last Sunday since I can't respond to individual comments anymore.
I was asked how I dried Welsh Beauty after washing in cold water. I partially dried in the clothes dryer but not completely, it was still very damp. I laid it on our bed by 8 am, turned the ceiling fan on high and left it dry for most of the day. It was dry by bedtime.
The batting was a wool batting, I don't know if that was one of the reasons it shrank so much or not.
I don't normally enter quilts in quilt shows except for the Sauder Quilt Show in May. I'll think about it this winter.
Welsh Beauty and I are going to a quilt retreat this week, I'll try and get some better pictures of the quilt.
