New quilt

I'm working on a new quilt, to hang on the stairs, above the entryway. See, we need a quilt there because the dogs, or the cat, always open the upstairs bathroom door, when someone is in the bath tub, and then that door, and consequently the bath tub, look straight out onto the driveway and highway. Not so fun. So I've been working on this project for a few years, and I'm finally getting back to is. The outer blocks are done, and as of today the center panel is done. A few borders, and some connecting work, and it'll be done. But for now, here is the center panel. I cut out, and appliqued and embroidered it all. The mountain is about 5 shades of purple fabric (batik), and its embroidered in a hollowshimmer thread so it sparkles. Very fun! Can't wait to finish it this week.

This center panel is so gorgeous. I can't wait for the whole quilt. I'm so glad you found a project to ward off your ennui. (that's French you know, and thus, only appropriate on Fridays).

Can't wait to see the pumpkins next week. YAY for quilting. And I am super impressed with how quickly you picked up machine embroidery. You must have had a really really good sewing teacher when you were younger. hehehe
