I got most of the blocks done last week, and this afternoon sat down to piece the rows together. Here in Florida on the Gulf Coast, it is our most uncomfortable time of year - hot and humid with afternoon thunderstorms. I got about 20 minutes splashing around in the pool before the black clouds moved in again - so a good time to sew for a while !
The quilt has a narrow blue border, then the cornerstones you see in the photo, and the vine print is for the main border. Binding fabric is the green dot. I was lucky enough to get one of these prints for the backing - the quilt itself is bed-size, 78 x 102 finished. I will tackle putting on the borders next weekend.
On to my small petasson in the making. The pattern is from Christiane Vignal's book, Boutis Traditionnel (one of my absolute favorite books). I started this as stitching practice for my large boutis, I am still not happy with my stitching and so I sew a little on this one before continuing with the lovely large one.
No real progress made with better stitching, but although they are not very even, these stitches are very small. I have no issues making very small stitches, but somehow even, regular work is challenge for me.
Hard to see the overall pattern now that it is stitched, but it is a very simple traditional one. Since I only have one small corner area of the tunnels left to stitch, I will finish this one now and stuff it, and continue stitching on the large one when it is not quite so hot to have on my lap !
