Some Progress on Fancy Squares and Quote Quilt
I added some trim to the intersections of Fancy Squares quilt. This is the same trim that was used in Maximalist and the Inspirational Quote crazy quilt. I was worried that the trim might be too big and might take away the pattern, but I like the way it looks. Now I have to figure out how to do the edges. I might add a binding, but I am hoping to find some kind of trim.
I added the fusible to the back of the Inspirational Quote crazy quilt. It is Pellon fusible fleece. I am hoping that it doesn't add too much bulk that makes it difficult to reach the middle of the quilt, but so far it is okay. As a bonus, that means the quilt was pressed again. I have to wrinkle it to reach the part I am embroidering, and all the wrinkles were bothering me. I will probably be pressing it more, but that has a bonus too - the quotes are going to be thoroughly heat set.
From this distance, it is hard to see that there is embroidery on this quilt.
