Fussy Friday progress
When, I was piecing the cream background, I did not have enough fabric. For two rows, I had to source a different fabric, I was unhappy with the result. Lo and behold, I had to go to the LPS for something else, and the lass showed me some fabric, that had just come in. Yes, it was the original background fabric. I unpicked the two rows, as I knew when the quilt was finished, I would be unhappy with the result. There are two and a half rows to stitch, plus the joining chocolate diamonds.
I am wondering whether to applique a cream border around it and bind with the chocolate fabric.
It has been a long time since, I learnt hand piecing, but loved the soothing effect on me as I quietly stitched.
Our young great niece, was involved in a terrible car accident, on Wednesday. I have not thought of anything else, since.Fractured spine and sternum, just 17 years old. A parents worst nightmare. Thank goodness, for the air ambulance, paramedics, nurses, doctors and all medical personnel. a heartfelt thankyou.
