I continue to feel a little better every day following my back surgery. Saw the doctor last week and he said everything was looking good. I still have to wear the back brace for FOUR more months. It is a good thing in that it keeps me from moving in ways I shouldn't. He gave me permission to drive short distances. WAHOOOO!!! I must say my husband was really sweet doing all the shopping, etc. I'm up to walking 30 minutes a day.
Over the weekend I finished sewing together the Circles Pizzaz quilt which I started in February of 2016. I took a guild sponsored class byJudy Cisneros, http://judysisneros.com/ She was a very good teacher. Sewing these blocks together were quite challenging due to the curved piecing. Through sewing these blocks I have become much more comfortable with curved piecing. Her book titled Circles Pizzazz is well written with many tips on doing the curved piecing.
Below is my quilt ready to be quilted. To plan the quilting, I like to print out a picture of the quilt and use an overhead projector marker to draw on a transparency placed over the photo. I'm thinking of following the dynamic curved lines, using a multicolored thread on the black areas and a black and white thread on the colored part.
Below is a picture of the backing. I like to use up some of the many fabrics
stuffed into my dressers and cabinets.
