The weather is cooling down, so I won't be sitting outside doing my applique for Eva as I have been doing for her quilt everyday. I've been taking on the pressure of having to get it done by her wedding, but that is something I don't need to do. It'll be a great heirloom even if she gets it a year late (which she won't). When the pressure comes on, it doesn't become enjoyable anymore, because you have to get it done. I do really enjoy this quilt.
Today I'm cutting out the outer borders and am going to trace my pattern for the trapunto onto them. After making the pattern, I traced it onto one panel and then realized I should have started from the center as I had made the panel longer than needed. So I washed the blue out and it's in the dryer now. I think I'll sew the whole quilt together first and then trace to make sure everything works out right. My border as I'm drawing.
