This was such a fun project to do for charity. I have no little kids in my life so it was truly a treat to work on it. People make quilts and bring them to the Indiana Embroidery Conference to donate to HUGS. I had an enjoyable time working on this so I have another quilt top done, and two more sets cut out. So I think I will just make a few more and save them for future events.
I was so happy with it that I brought it to show to my girl friend, Stevie. I had just the top done at our morning coffee yesterday. She was really sweet giving the right amount of ooohs and aaaahhhs and then suggested strongly that I free motion the borders rather than stitch in the ditch.
This morning as I planned to stitch in the ditch, I could hear her voice saying, you really should consider adding some free motion meandering as it lends itself to this whimsy quilt. As much as I tried to think otherwise, I knew she was right so thank you, Stevie, for giving me that little extra nudge I needed to do it better.
Hugs to you! Cookie
