The Last Pictures
The weather warmed, a bit, and the sun came out and every bug in the area, it seemed, leaped or flew onto my quilt.
This large wasp being one of the first to arrive. And I just read The Wasp Scene in The Bees book last night so this really creeped me out! (Anyone else reading this book?) It would not leave!
Here's a close-up of the negative space. I love the way it turns out though sewing it I was not feeling any love whatsoever. I was afraid the density would make the quilt stiff, but no, it's nice and soft. My first time using Aurifil, 50 wt., for quilting and I see why it gets such rave reviews. I also used it for hand sewing the binding and it was great. No tangles.
I made a section of binding with all the colors, didn't want anyone slighted!
Pretty pleased with myself at this point, the wasp is gone! Little did I know it hitched a ride into the house on my hair.
Thanks for stopping by~
