Aren't these fabrics still beautiful??? I added a panel of appliqued flowers on the side (I also love applique).
I won't show you the whole thing yet, but I am machine quilting the main body of the quilt and hand quilting the appliqued panel. I've been listening to a lot of music and trying to trust that this will soon be over.
Hand quilting soothes me. It's quiet and comforting. While waiting for the ash cloud to move, this has been my comfort. I'm not sure what I will name it, but I will never forget what was going on around me while I was making it.
Hopefully, in a few weeks I will show you this beauty. Maybe that's what I'll name it, Beauty From Ashes.
Until next time,
