Modern Sunbonnet Sue's Musings

Musings from the mind of a modern day Sue:
When it Rains, I Quilt

Tonight was supposed to be "work in the garden" night. Then, it rained, which was really needed. So, instead of gardening, I get to do some quilting.

The machine quilting is progressing on the wall hanging of my granddaughter made from a photograph. I began the upper body portion last night and plan to finish the quilting on this area tonight. So far, the quilting has been done with a clear embroidery foot to make it easier to see the edges of the small applique pieces. I plan to do free motion quilting to fill in the larger spaces. I'm thinking of using large pebbles, swirls, and squiggles. Then, I can move into the pieced blue background made up of 5" charm squares. The plan is to do a maze type design in each square. I know that some of you are waiting to see the quilt, but I want to have the quilting complete before revealing it.

Here's to Rainy Days!
