After Grandma finished at the Doctor today we ended up at the local shopping centre to finalise our Christmas shopping. I’m very pleased to say that I have now got everything that I need. Now all I need to do is wrap it all up!
Actually, it’s funny. I knew that Christmas was close but it was only today that I worked out that it is next weekend. That’s only 5 business days away!
Anyways, when we finished I came home and started sewing on Made in Cherry again and after stopping for dinner I have now finished it to the halfway point.
I can’t believe it is coming together so quickly. I wasn’t sure about how it was going to turn out but now that I have done half I can see that thankfully it will work with the scraps that I have on hand.
I’m thinking of quilting it in a grid form like Rita (Red Pepper Quilts) on her latest quilt.
The only problem that I can see with quilting it this way is that this quilt is going to be 60′ square so doing it in a grid form means that it will take forever to actually quilt it. Even knowing this, this is the option that I’m leaning towards.
The other option is to quilt the star in a beige thread in my squiggles and the black fabric in black thread in squiggles.
If I was better and cleverer at quilting I’d do something fancy with the star and then feathers or something similar in a contrasting thread in the open black fabric.
Binding wise, I’m thinking black or perhaps red or even the orange (Michael Miller) fairy frost that I used in Rolling Along. I’ll have to think about it some more…..
Although, I’m not sure how long I’ll be able to think cause I’m leaning towards finishing this one next instead of Pink Windy Days or Choc Coconut Ice.
Anyways, I’m off to bed to catch some zzzz’s and I’ll finish this quilt tomorrow.
Sweet dreams y’all 🙂
