This week I was able to finish the embroidery/beading on the cherry blossom branch. The backing fabric arrived, I bought batting and now I can baste and begin hand quilting.
The hot pink batik is my backing. Just love the colors in the piece and so out of my normal color scheme.
Today I got into some scrap 2-1/2″ strips I had left over from my great niece’s baby quilt. Since our guild is tying baby quilts at our May meeting, I have my top ready to go. If I have enough time before Wednesday I may just machine quilt it in the ditch. Love the little birds in the border fabric, so Springy. This measures 34″ x 44″.
