A few posts back, I wrote about how I wanted to make a Grandmother's fan quilt.
This was me playing with layouts....and I decided to go with this one:
I added a couple of wide plain borders with the intention of doing appliqued hummingbirds and flowers all around but it just didn't look right.
So, I thought how about some Dresdens around the border?
I spent 2 days making a stack and I didn't like how they looked either, So I have decided to leave the borders plain and will instead quilt my hummingbirds and flowers into the borders.
Of course I had spent time drawing out my hummingbirds design and rather than not use them, I started a new wall hanging.
I appliqued my design and loaded it onto my hand sewing frame. Some nice embroidery will bring out the details.
I will make a pieced border to frame this then FMQ it. Really enjoying the hand embroidery bit and I've managed to get two projects out of one idea.
I'll be a while on this one as there are two more hummingbirds to embroider.
See you all next time.
