The new Vinca quilt has been finished for a few days – finished unless I decide to add some beading to the centers! It’s only 10.75″ square, so how long could it take! It looks appliqued, but it is pieced. There are two different backgrounds, they give the look I wanted,Â but they are too similar to each other. The fabrics in this are mostly hand dyes with a couple of batiks added.Â I liked the hand dyed blue for the flowers because of the shadings in it even though it is not the proper periwinkle color.Â It was not necessary to finish the edges as they are going to mount it behind a mat with an 8″ opening, but IÂ just couldn’t let it go unfinished like that. I hope they don’t mind!
My previous problem with posting was due to my own technologically challenged status and I guess I have been procrastinating trying to post again, lest I prove my incapacity. But – it went well, as predicted by my wonderful web masters at Gloderworks!
In the meantime I have been keeping busy catching up on other things, like doing the books in order to get the sales tax in on time, entries and general decluttering. Considering the things I have been doing, it occurred to me this morning that what I was REALLY doing was avoiding facing this blog photo thing.Â So now that is behind us, we can move on!
