Embroidering and quilting in the sun

Still working on this collection of orphanage and/or abandoned blocks.

I'm embroidering over the seems in red and écru

and quilting in bigger stitches with Week dye works thread .

Lizzy is joining me, she loves sunbathing

And these cathedral windows (called 'ramen lappen' in Dutch by Supergoof from whom I learned to make this), made from Japanese fabrics on a cotton 80%/linen 20%  fabric, are growing slowly. A nice quilt to work on while traveling or waiting.

Have a nice weekend,

How lovely to sew in the sun. Your quilt looks beautiful and I'm particularly taken with the chicken block. It looks just like a chicken I had.

Wat ziet die quilt er leuk uit met die kip. Je raampjes zijn ook prachtig !!

Wat een gezellige quilt laat je zien, je raampjes zijn ook heel mooi, heerlijk dat je niet alleen in de zon hoeft te genieten, gedeelde vreugd is dubbele vreugd, toch?
