|Hard to see, but the piece is beautiful!|
|Progress as of 1/6/13|
It's hard to tell in this picture, but I'm stitching this 2 over 2 on 28 count joblean in bone. This piece also has a lot of backstitching in each individual quilt square, so there is no way I'm leaving that until the very end! It's set up to make it relatively easy to do the stitching on each piece as you do it, which I like. The states will be stitched in the order in which they entered the union, so Delaware is first!
My intention is to give this to my father when it's done, as he works for the government and is a very patriotic man. Who knows when that will be, but this piece, at least, does have an intended home!
Back to the work week tomorrow...boo hiss! Work always interferes with stitchy time!
Until next time!
