Finally, some progress on my Summer Picnic Dish quilt. I’m adding the setting pieces as I go so that when I’m finished adding blocks, I’ll be finished altogether. It takes only a couple of minutes to add a setting piece as I go and is much nicer than having to add them all at the end. The one thing I’ve not decided on yet is whether this will be a borderless quilt, which seems to be my normal preference, or if I’ll add some sort of pieced or appliqued border. So for now, I’m leaving the corners curved. If I decide on no border, then I’ll have lovely curved corners. If I decide to add borders, I can easily add the 4 setting pieces to the corners. This is one project that is moving to the top of the list to be worked on.
The question of borders is one with which I constantly wrestle. I love the look of antique quilts that have no borders and that seems to be what guides me. Yet I also love the look of a pieced or appliqued border.
March came in like a lamb, although it was windy. We had the windows open for a while and it was marvelous. I noticed a difference in the light Tuesday as well. What a wonderful time of year this is — so full of promise that winter is almost over.
We did get photos of the kitties Tuesday. Lester was looking rather elegant.
Smudge was curled up relaxing.
