Making Aqua Headway
I’m really enjoying working on my New York Beauty blocks. This was a QAL from several years ago and although I printed off all of my blocks, I did not get all ten sets finished. The color aqua must be on my mind since that is the RSC14 color this month.
The aqua continued with the arrival of my swap quilt from the ALQS8. This piece was made by Mary Jackson and came from the U.K. I really love the wonderful scrappiness of this quilt and the workmanship is excellent. The colors are fabulous too.
Switching gears a bit…. I completed a table runner for an auction that is coming up later this month. I did one last year for the same auction and it went over really well.
The detail of the machine embroidery is a little hard to see in the photo above, but it was completed using various colors of Floriani threads. These threads are really lovely for machine embroidery. They have such a beautiful sheen to them.
We’ll have little ones for the weekend so there won’t be any sewing being done around here.
