Monday Morning Design Wall 7/9/2012
I had a very productive two weeks, finally finishing every block for my Baltimore Album. I have done enough french knots to sink a ship but I am very happy with the results. Worth all the work!! I have embellished and I think it looks great.
The rows are sewn together but I wanted to preview it for a day or two before I finish the rest of the sewing. I am working on the first border so I have high hopes it will be finished soon. I also finished another from the P3 Designs and will soon start the next block. There is only one difficult one left so that is good.
Below are a couple of close up pictures of my french knots, the block is fourth row, second from the left. I was so worried about doing them I initially decided to skip them but a bit of practice and they turned out rather well!!
I can't wait to get the first border done and I hope to be quilting this quilt shortly after Labor Day once it cools off here in the hot hot valley of central California. Don't forget to check out all the other walls in Judy's blog.
