Another Weekend Has Come and Gone

But this weekend I was able to Finish Up my Slice of Summer quilt -- well, almost. I ordered some new beads so that I could finish putting the beads where I wanted them to go. For the first time, I quilted on my appliques. Usually I quilt around them, but this time I tried something new. I tried to make the quilting on the fence look like wood-grain, I did wavy lines in the flag stripes, stars in the blue fields of the flags, I did swirls on the tomatoes, and although my technique isn't the greatest yet, I like how they turned out. Now I have to decide what to do next. But first, I have to finish serging the patriotic bandanas for the kennel. Have a great week. Linda
