This weekend I finished the center section of my quilt for the Handstitched class. The little balls are perle cotton that I will use to embroider the white section. I'm excited at how nicely it's turning out and I'm looking forward to starting the embroidery once it is posted tomorrow!
I am especially proud of my inspiration to cut that outer border fabric on the bias so that (a) I would have long enough strips to miter the corners and (b) all the colors would show. The fabric usually looks like this.
