Noah's Ark quilt with a herringbone stitch instead of using stitch in the ditch
I started the morning with a little cutting and then headed out to church. When I came home I quilted my first UFO using an odd stitch. I had not quilted the Noah's Ark because I did not like the stark contrast of the white against the blue batik. Although it is not really an original layout, I really do like the animal blocks embroidered by my FIL. The blue and white batik looks a little like water.The herringbone stitch seems to have softened the edges. Now all I have to do is do the hand sewing on the binding.
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!
