Quilt finish, Will's quilt, and new fabric
I finished En Vino Veritas just in time to put up the library display today. After discussions with Tom and Will (SIL), I selected a dark gray/black batik for the binding. I quilted the top with light lavender and the back with dark purple. Here are some details of the quilting.
I decided to use a medium size overall stipple, because that is what I know how to do. One of these days, I really need to set up a practice piece and learn to do something else.
Will started a new quilt for one of her sisters while she was here. Don't you love the colors? The sister is a strawberry blond and has a very traditionally styled house. This is going to be perfect.
While Will was here, we visited quite a few quilt shops. I did some stash building, as well as picked up some fabrics for a wedding quilt I need to get done before October 1.
Will left today, so I have lost my quilt shop companion and have no excuses to be out of the studio for a while. Joyful quilting, everyone.
