Today I plan to work on Circle of Jewels. I need to make some half flower rosettes and some half jewels. This means I am almost finished with the hand stitching part of this quilt. I love my zebra lap desk. It has a nice padded underside so stays almost level on my lap. That is if a cute little dog or a couple of kittens stay out of the way.
Last Monday I took this photo. I have since finished the bottom row, See there on the right side, 2nd row? I was unsure what to fill that with so I sent this picture off in an email off to Mickey DePre for her opinion. (After all, it is all her fault that I started this. All she did was post one little picture of her future project and I fell in love and went crazy! Crazy in a good way!!) She said she planned to fill her sides in with half flowers so I will too. Then I will machine applique it to a narrow border and add a wider black and white print border like I did with Mae's GFG. I will probably quilt it pretty much the same as her's too.
This isn't a big quilt, it's just the right size to cuddle on the couch with.
What are you stitching today? See great projects at Kathy's Quilt: Slow Sunday Stitching.
