A finish and more progress

 I have finished the Folk Art Fantasy wall hanging top.
On the vase I used reverse applique, a technique I haven't used for a long time.
The quilting will be done by machine once I have chosen a backing fabric.

Here is the next block of Tailfeathers. This is
such a fun project! I just love all those cute embroidered birds.
I have block 7 started.

 Finally, I have caught up with Barbara Brackman's  Civil War Quilt blocks.
These 2 are block 6, Richmond and block 7, Log Cabin.

I made this tote bag today. I used a coated fabric.

Soooooo excited about tomorrow!!!!

Chat soon..........
