Maine’s 1st Quilt – Busy After Christmas
Since taking the month of December off, I have hardly come out of my sewing room for air! So far this month I have embroidered the paisleys for the corner triangles, finished making my border corners, sashing, and finally began the assembly. Whew! When doing the embroidery work for the corner triangles the metallic work was so beautiful, that I made a design decision not to include the white dots on the border of the paisley. Ready to join the blocks in rows, which was quite a chore, I referred back to the blog many times. As a first time quilter the tips from Amanda were invaluable. Also, I can’t tell you what a relief it was to realize that all the squares needed were present and accounted for!
