This week I have been taking it easy and enjoying a bit of a quilting break, well not completely! I did put my Round Robin on my machine and quilted it up this week and got the binding on as well. I started by stabilizing the whole quilt with stitch in the ditch as I had no idea what I wanted to quilt on it. I started with the outer border feathers and from there I decided on the feather motifs for the setting triangles. I made the pebble borders with alternating big and small pebbles for a different look and had to really focus to get them reasonability even. That was one moment where a computer on my machine would have been nice. Took a while to decide on what to put in the inner white border but a simple curl feather design seemed to fit nicely.
We have been making more ‘ice balls’ for our deck railing and they go right to the end of the deck now! I'm now making a bunch for down by the dock too!
The weather has been unseasonably warm here so we have been going for a lot of walk out along our bush trail, packing it well with our snowshoes. We managed to convince our youngest son to finally walk our trail and I think he might of even enjoyed it! It has been snowing all week here so the trees are all white with fresh snow so I’m waiting for the sun to peek out to get pictures of my Day Break quilt that I finished over a week ago. Looks like we might see some sun by the end of the week so I hope to get some pictures of it before New Years.
