...oh, and that is plus 400 blanket stitches. I've been working on embellishing the brown trim that surrounds the center section of the Fan Quilt.
I took a flying leap and decided to push on the blue quotient of the quilt a bit...then brought in some purple and bright pink to lift up that heavy brown. I like it o.k., but I think I will love it when I fight back against this sweetie pie emphasis with some heavy orange and acid green in the center seam treatments.
Once all those blue loopies were done, I glue basted the cording into place instead of pinning it. Slick and easy, it worked great.
A close up of the border treatment, and also of some of Susan Else's fabric that I had appliqued on.
More orange, more orange...!!!
