Yesterday I got a bit of quilting done, as I basted two quilts! and got one of them quilted.
I have been making little swatches of machine quilted patterns:
There are all sorts of little filler patterns,
I hope to be a bit more adventurous when I do the bright colored quilt.
Also on the track of finishing things off, I just bound the Art to heart fabrics sampler with Applique,
For the quilting, I just used an off-white thread, and did an allover pattern of leaves on most of it, from the center out, but then the last pass around the outside border I used meandering. (not sure if it shows up in this close-up)
We had quite a rainstorm on Saturday, and so yesterday there was a lake outside our back yard!
But it is all gone today, I think we must have gotten about 6 inches of rain.
This is the resurrection fern on the oak tree in our deck:
