Salad Plates, circa Civil War
So today I thought I'd put a batch of blades together to see how I liked them. I guess I liked them because when I quit for the night a little while ago there were five cutie-pies up on my wall. Each has ten fabrics in it, all CW repros in warmish tones. I've pulled out enough blades for two more and am thinking that if there are two more beyond those two, I'll have nine and I think that might be enough. Not having begun the applique process, I don't know how I'll take to it, so I don't want to commit to too many.
Am trying to lure Helen into a LQS run so I can pick out background (am thinking unbleached muslin?) and something for all of the center circles. So I imagine I'll be posting more on this project this summer.
In other efforts, yesterday I finished hand-quilting a baby girl quilt and got the binding machined on, so I know what the rest of this evening holds. Pic soon, fer shure.
