I finally got one side of the applique on teh Log Cabin Baskets stitched down. I did a machine blanket stitch around the edge of fused applique. If I had the time, I would have done it by hand. It is quite a chore stitching down and working/manuvering the queen-size quilt top. I need to prepare a few more pieces and the bias vines so that I can lay out the left side. Here is what it looks like so far.
Went to the fabric store in Canton and bought some fabric for one of the quilts I will make on the cruise. I will start cuttng the kits this weekend. I put on a big pot of beans so I will have my black-eyed peas today. It is one of the 15 bean soups and I added salt pork and sausage. It smells so good. It will be great with cornbread. It is hard to remember that this is Tuesday...it feels like a Sunday afternoon. Now to get busy and put a sleeve on my quilt for the Jefferson quilt show and check and see about entering Dallas.
