Hello, One Flower Wednesday!

Encouraging Words of the Day:

Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better.

- Colossians 1:10 (NLT)

 

Hello "One-Flower Wednesday!" I've been busy quilting my Christmas Quilt on my sewing machine. It takes some muscle to wrestle a quilt while trying to move it around. I guess I can call that my exercise for the day, right?

I'm almost done, just need to quilt that last green border and then bind it.

 

I took time last evening to get two little flowers ready for "One-Flower Wednesday." Again I made one 1/2-inch flower surrounded with the green leafy fabric and one without.

Total is now 220. I know, I know, last week I said total was 209 but I re-counted and found that I had 220 so that's good news. Click on “One Flower Wednesday” to see flowers others have made.

 

That is all.

Don't you just love it when the miss-count goes in that direction? just can't imagine doing all that work quilting by machine. I would spend days just taking it out and doing it over. There is smething good about hand work.

I think it's a good idea how you have been making one of your flowers with the green leafy border right away........it will make your work later easier! You are all "truchas" with all the stuff you have been accomplishing lately. I am going to go post my OFW on Thursday this week............

Quilting big quilts is good exercise! Your Christmas quilt looks very nice and so are your flowers. Enjoy your weekend!

That is a big quilt to move around under a home machine. My shoulders always tense up so when I try to do something like that. It will be gorgeous when you are finished.
