I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! Mine was wonderful. Don't get me wrong, there were some crazy moments with 33 family members here. But how could there not be with that many people! It was very hard to get my DQS5 quilt done with so many house guests, especially the little ones. So I finished it after everyone had cleared out. I didn't have very much more to do on it and I am kind of in love with it. It will be hard to let this one go. That is the one thing about swaps that I am finding is challenging...letting perfectly good, finished quilts leave my home.
I have been wanting to try the sketchy outline applique technique that I have seen on some of my favorite blogs lately. I really like how it turned out. I will definately try this technique again. It was so fun!
I am reluctantly sending it out today to a wonderful quilter who experiences the same kind of dreary weather that I do. I hope this will bring some cheer!
