WOW Deadlines



I am finishing things for my daughter to take on her visit to her hubby's homeland.  This hand applique was done some time ago and I never did get the rest of the blocks done so...  bind and give away.




This lap quilt is ready for hand stitching the binding down.  Blue is tricky in artificial light so I hope this conveys the vivid brightness of it.



I am free motioning leaves and considering the individual blocks as I do that.  I got some different thread, Invisa Fil  and I'll try to do curved outlining in the sampler blocks.  


I'll be taking a few moments to check on The Needle and Thread Network participants and then it is back to my work table.  The deadline is looming!

Your hand appliqued flower is beautiful and a lovely gift. The blues are beautiful and my favorite color. Looks like you are being super productive and getting lots of Nina time. Blissfully Creating...

I still like the blue and orange quilt best......my favorite color combo! Great way to make something special with the appliqué.

You have a lot on your plate, and the only thing I see finished is the flower. It will make an awesome gift, though. Love how you always plan your work in advance. I seldom do that!

Look at those colors! Wow. Sorry I haven't been by here sooner. Just busy. Kudos to you on that applique and round edge binding!

Those orange diamonds remind me of leaves against the sky in autumn. SWEET!!
