I'm continuing to whip stitch down the pieces for my "Imperial Blooms" quilt. It's quite therapeutic, except when the thumb arthritis acts up and I have to take a break -- like now.
This is just the base for the embellishments to come: embroidery with perle cotton and a lot of beads.
I love, love, love the colors of the wool. People always ask where I get my wool, and I tell them that every time I go into a quilt store I'm on the lookout for it. I haven't made it to thrift stores yet to buy wool garments, but that's coming.
Here's a look at the blocks I have completed so far. The background blocks are 11" square.
You can see how the colors contrast with our outside view today. This is why I work with such bright colors!
Have a colorful day
