Basically, this is the order: Darts, Shoulders, Side Seams, Collar, Facings, Sleeves, Hems, Buttonholes and Buttons.
My friend, Jolene, completed a super fantabulous wall quilt today. I asked her to PLEASE let me show it to you, so let me see if I can do that and not mess it up. (Can you tell I'm tired?)
I believe Jolene said this was for a Hoffman Challenge and it is going to be entered into a show. She hopes to win a ribbon. So much of the color in this quilt is THREAD quilted into it by Jolene. Pictures just do not do quilts justice at all.
Let me see if I can get a close-up that shows her stitching better. The stitching is in so many colors of thread and so intricate. Surely, she will win a ribbon for this wall quilt.
I am so proud of Jolene. This quilt is named "Thank my "Lucky" Stars" after their beloved family dog who just died recently. She was almost too sad to finish this quilt. I would love to see it in person.
And this afternoon, I have cut up 9 boards into 72 smaller boards. I wrapped fabric until I am tired and my back is screaming, "STOP LADY!", and I have about decided to give everything that is left to the Goodwill. I'm sure I will rethink that by morning, but for now it seems like a real good idea.
I won't keep you tonight because my body wants jammies and a cool drink and a bed.
Be back soon though.
