Tuesday plans

It takes a blogger to go out at 7 am to catch a ray of sun on the remnants of the hollyhocks just because the colours goes so well with the quilt under work, right? :-)

I heard on the radio yesterday that earth tones and browns are The Hot colours in decorating this season.
I guess this quilt is very right then - the recipient is very into home decorating :-)

As you can see the quilt is now ready for machine quilting. It will be straight seams, so I will put the accu feed foot on the Janome.

I hope to be able to finish the machine quilting today. Maybe even start working on the binding. I hope to be able to cut it, join the lengths and maybe sew it on by machine so I can start doing the hand sewing tomorrow.

LOL - only a blogger would take the time to take such a great picture so early in the morning. It's beautiful, Hanne.

This quilt is so lovely and modern. Brown has always been one of my favorite colours.

Your blog readers appreciate your efforts to get a good picture! The quilt is beautiful. I love working with browns. They go with so much. Good luck getting the quilting and binding done today (although it's probably already tomorrow for you!).

What a lovely picture! When we built our house in 1978 we had brown carpet placed inside. I loved that wall-to-wall carpeting: it didn't show any dirt or wear at all. So brown is back in?

The photo is great. A good combination of colors. I like brown too. Our living room is painted a light mocha brown so I guess I'm in style.

I just love that quilt. Brown is such an unlikely color for a fabulous quilt, but they always look so pretty.
