Ok, borders are added and it is sandwiched and I'm ready to hand quilt it over the summer...
It may not appear large but let me tell you it is
70 inches square...or 177.8 centimetres
It is large and will be perfect for the winter months, I added 2 layers of quilt batting
this will be a duvet cover that is quilted...I then will make a goose down duvet
designed specifically designed for this large duvet cover....
so the back will be added ( gingham of course) after all the hand quilting is done..
I will be adding buttons on the left side for the opening..
The hand quilting I will be doing is not a conventional one by any means..
as soon as I have done some that you can see, I will show you....
this needle turn applique was created by Cori for a special celebration
i could never ask for more!
So you are WELCOME anytime, as you can see, I am ready for
BERRY season, berries are not even up around here...a few more weeks
and I will be freezing some and making some berry toppings...
By the way David has only one more weekend before he heads
out to the Ride to Conquer Cancer...
2 very long days of cycling 100 km per day...
I will be there cheering him on like I did last year..
This was him returning from the finished line where I parked to retrieve him...
I was so proud of him!
I am most certain his ongoing battle with cancer is that he has goals
and he works towards them so he can stick around a little while longer..
And that is fine by me....so I am full of gratitude that you are
helping him to stay !
I get so emotional when I think of my life without him
so I am not going there...I will enjoy every moment
he gives me....
I have a few errands to run today...so cheerio..
