Well--it's done. The top of my Fire Island Hosta has been finished. A few "minor details" like getting it quilted, and then it will really truly be a quilt.
Here she is having a photo session on the grass--we had to weight the corners down with rocks, because it was breezy today! Anne came over to sew--and she was really productive, too, maybe she'll revive her blog and post a few pictures? It's always fun to have a friend to sew with. She's much more encouraging to sew with than Shyla!
The next series of pictures are in-progress shots. Because I'm still wrangling with the various Blogger programs, I think I'll just caption them instead of writing a whole lot. Besides, the top is done now, so it's not that thrilling to see how it got there. Is it?
|Testing out the layout|
|After sewing all the curves, these sectioins need to be joined|
|Testing the way the corners will line up. Surprise--they match!|
|Curves sewn to curves sewn to curves!|
|I don't usually use this many pins to sew a curve, but I was nervous!|
|Stacking them up as they're sewn in.|
|Laying out all the components, ready to start sewing the-gulp!-curves!|
|Some lefts, some rights, and I don't want to mix them up!|
