Jo Morton Progress
Here is a Jo number that I just finished up this past week. I love the feel of a little quilt once washed and dried. Rather than a simple meander I quilted some "peacock" loops/feathers or whatever you want to call them. It is always an exciting moment to stitch the last bit of binding down and toss the quilt into the wash...so I can decorate!
This is another Jo project. I've got all the hourglass blocks completed and rows stitched up just waiting for that applique block for the middle. Jo club meets first Tuesday of the month so I won't get the pattern for the applique until next week.
I starched my Jo Morton fabrics heavily. The pile of fat quarters feel like heavy cardstock paper. A friend of mine told me about this and how easy it was to piece the smaller bits of fabric. Boy was she right! My only concern about having starch in my fabrics is the fact that silverfish love to eat starch. I'll keep an eye on my starched stash and as always I wash my quilts to remove it before displaying.
A friend wants me to post some more house decorating photos.....I've got many but here is one specifically for her. Smile Bonnie! Perhaps you too will look at "finds" differently. This quilt rack....oh, wait it is a saw; $15 and a great addition to my home.
