I think I need a change of plans
Thinking that with all these square blocks, the border needed something curvy like feathers, I looked through my templates. Of course, there was nothing that would work on a four-inch strip ...
... so, I drafted out a pattern and cut a template from plastic.
The plan was, to start in the corners and work to the center of each border.
After quilting the first corner, I am thinking a whole border of feathers would be a big waste of time.
This batik is better than camouflage for hiding stitches.
I think I may go back to my stencil collection and join the corner feathers with a cable ... maybe putting one of these feather designs at the center of each side ... if the cables don't link up neatly.
I sure don't want to start un-stitching what is already in place.
The next four days are going to be super-busy with a juggling of schedules ... scouting stuff ... school stuff ... choir stuff ... and feeding these silkworms who managed to gobble up a dozen large leaves by the time I had finished my first cup of coffee.
I read all the busy stuff my blogging friends are getting done and wonder how they do it! Am I missing something?
