The embroidery on this wall hanging was done by my BFF, Mary, many moons ago. I had always intended to frame it with plaid and hang it with an interesting twig. So I framed it and bound it last week, but when I went to go outside to get an interesting twig today, it was raining. Our home is on a lake in a woods -- peaceful and beautiful. We have always called the rec room downstairs "The Lodge", so Mary's embroidery was wonderfully apropos.
No thunder or lightning today, so I sequestered myself in my lurkim and quilted Joyce T's Outreach Program quilt for her. I love McTavishing but my freehand doesn't look much like the real thing, so I used my IntelliQuilter to do this pantograph.
People don't seem to realize how nice it is to have some plain areas in their quilts so that the quilting can shine through. This quilt had plain medium blue borders, so I used a variegated thread and gave it a little pizzazz!
Our Outreach Program quilts this month will be going to the VA Hospital in Durman, NC. Just another way of saying Thank You to our men and women in the armed forces.
So what did you do today?
