New Possibilities for a New Quilt

This was a long day of sewing and napping--a great way to spend a day off. I have 10 of the 14 rows joined on my new quilt--Essences of Joy. I'm excited watching this creation come to life. Just a bit more and it will be ready to be pressed and quilted. As a trial run I tried metallic gold thread stitched on scraps of the fabric. It's beautiful. and the thought of bits of sparkle shimmering through my quilt really excites me. I still need to pick out my backing but that should be done in short order. Watch for the finished top to be posted soon and in a few weeks the finished quilt.
