After working on the quilt for the Walworth County Childrens' Alliance, I thought it was time to do something a little more simple and smaller.
We are bringing a new generation into the world. My great-nephew and his wife are expecting a baby in early September so I just finished this baby quilt a few days ago.
What you see in the background is a whole cloth quilt that hasn't quite been finished yet. I stopped working on it so I could complete the quilt for the WCACC.
I am going to visit a former co-worker whom I have not seen in years. She is now 88 years old and lives in Dothan, Alabama. I decided to make this dresser runner from Joanie Zeier Poole's book "Elegant Machine Quilting" and will take it to her as a token of our friendship.
The image is difficult as it is made with white fabric and stitched with gold thread. I took a close up image of a portion so you could see the detail of the trapunto.
It was a refreshing to do some simpler smaller things before I complete the next large project.
