Project progress

Days are flying by!

The Snowman Collector quilt is ready for quilting - finally.
I planned to use cotton batting and thought I had a new packet of it, but fact is that I have only pieces suitable for smaller quilts.
I found a packet of wool batting on the shelf and thought, why not - use it!
I have never used wool batting before, but if I don't give it a try I will not know how it is either.

I will quilt all the frames around the applique blocks by machine and quilt around the applique by hand.
My original plan was to finish this quilt by this upcoming weekend, for the bi-annual local quilt show, but as you see, I did not make it.
Life has a way of interfering with quilting sometimes.
It will get done in 2007 though, and this is my one and only old Ufo right now :-)

The Peace and Plenty stitchery from Leanne's workshop in Trysil is done though, and will get a fabric border and framing tomorrow. It looks Good :-)
