Right next to where we parked the Winter Aconite was poking up through the dead leaves. It is usually one of the first flowers we see. After this long cold snowy winter it is so nice to see the little flowers poking their heads up.
I have finished the quilting on the Falling "Charms" quilt. In this first shot it is on my dining room table. I think you can see the quilting better on this one.
I quilted in the ditch in all of the made fabric charms. In a few places I added some decorative stitching where the seams were pulling apart a little and in a couple of places where there was a patch that was large and needed to have some stitching to make it lay down and not pouf out.
Below are shots of the whole quilt and one of the corners. I need to add the binding and I have not settled yet on what I want. I have enough fabric to make the binding the same as the border but I have been thinking about Kona Bone for the binding. It is one of my favorite binding fabrics when it is used in the body of a made fabric quilt. I am going to ponder this for a while before I go ahead and add the binding.
