My wonderful middle daughter, the former Miss California, Maili, has downloaded Safari and that is the internet browser I am using. It is not perfect but it does work - at least for now. It takes a bit of getting used to - like anything new.
I have completed my little quilt and here are the pictures. It is a house warming gift for my eldest daughter Laila and her husband Gilles. They just purchased their first house together in B.C.
These are the colours I went with for bordering the little wonky houses. I only used the three little houses because it fit better going down - instead of arranging them across. This way they will fit in some small space on the wall. I wanted green and brown/beige initially but my stash is lacking in shades of brown.
I then auditioned border fabric and even though it is hard to see in this picture, I went with the process of elimination and settled on the darkest green. I only have a small piece of it left and so I figure, it was meant to be.
Next step was putting it together with the backing fabric and batting.
I usually don't use a hoop when the quilt is this small. I just pin it all together.
Then I baste it all both ways about every 4 inches or so apart. It was hand quilted and bound. I had to use black to bind it since there wasn't enough of the dark green. The label is on and now I just have to put on the hanging sleeve.
I now have two aprons to make and a bag or two - and another quilt has been started and I have to get down to working on it.
**Some of the photos are clickable and so you can see a close-up. But some of them are not clickable. Does anybody know why this happens? It isn't Safari because the same thing happened in Explorer.
