I have been very busy piecing. On Sunday, I finally finished the blocks and put together the top of my niece's wedding quilt. I am going to do a simple meander with brown thread. (She got married in March, so I am definitely behind on it.) Then I finished off the borders on the green quilt. The centers of the stars are embroidered blocks of four seasons done by my FIL. I have not decided how it will be quilted, but I think I will outline the center of each block and then do some type of design in the star points with a fill stitch in the off-white. I want to keep it simple.
Tomorrow I am going to do a little quilting on several other quilt tops: another cousin quilt and one or two HeartStrings quilts. Not ready to tackle a queen-size quilt yet, but it will be done in the next couple of days.
After being away for 31 years, we are finally home again. We are South Dakotans through and through, so this is were we want to spend our "retirement" years. My husband and I are getting ready to open a custom woodworking business with me being the paper pusher and the woodworker's apprentice. Along with that I am going to continue quilting and also work as a substitute teacher. Life is good!
