New Quilt

I've been trying to use fabrics that have been in my stash for way to long and just finished a quilt for hubby that used quite a few of those fabrics. My black and white stash is now only small pieces, and I used most of the last bundle of rainbow colored fabrics that I dyed probably nine years ago just before I retired from vending. I told him it was his chemo quilt and it was to keep him warm if he got chilly during his infusions, he did take it with today to show the entire medical staff but didn't fell the need to use it.

SAQA mini conference

Next week I had planned to drive to Bozeman, MT to attend our regional SAQA mini conference, but canceled my plans due to Don's health issues. I did make two pieces for the regional trunk show and got them sent off this week.

Elm Leaves

An experiment with adding paper. I purchased an old paperback book of plants for the purpose of using in artwork, and I finally used some of it. 

2019 Daily Stitching #4 days 8-14

My plan is to do this entirely in running stitch and to have the leaves end up looking like they are layered. I'm not sure how well it will work, but you don't know until you try. So far I think that I should have used a lighter brighter color for the first leaf since it will be one of the ones that will look like it's on top. But it will stay the color it is because one of my rules for daily stitching is that I never rip anything out.
