It seems I've been on vacation. Not really, but we did spend Thanksgiving in Minneapolis with our wonderful family, and the weekend before that I was gone to an out of town wedding.
After finally finishing my shore birds quilt, I wanted and needed a break, a diversion. So, I began this wall hanging "Crimson Tweed" from the book by the same name, author Sue Spargo https://www.suespargo.com/.
I have combined hand wool applique with cotton raw edge machine appliques. I'm adding embroidered embellishments as I go along. There will also be appliqued borders. Will I finish it before Christmas? Hmmmm.... I do love the folk art designs and it's really been fun to stitch.
Meanwhile, my next large quilt is brewing in my head. More on that later.
