back to sewing.

I am feeling much better. And have started sewing again. :o) I started quilting my 'North Pole" quilt.
I need to pick a binding.... should I go with green, red, or white? or blue? The white you see now is the batting sticking out.

'Bareroots' camping quilt progress. Stitching a bus in the woods.
Finished another one for the camping quilt.
I am in a 'hand stitched' embroidery swap, here is my embroidery. I still need to cut the extra off , then I'll send it off.

And my first 'munki munki' block. I don't know if I like it or not. I am thinking it is too busy. So I have it up on my design wall trying to figure out what I am going to do with it.

The embroidery with the quilt in the tree and wagon is SO cute!

The North Pole quilt is wonderful! Have you auditioned a diagonal stripe for the border?

beth said...

Love ALL your hand work! and I also thought a red/white stripe might look nice on that binding. :)

Glad you are feeling better! I'm going to vote for the red/white stripe.

Everything looks the munki munki block! The stripe border sounds like a fun candy cane look!

i think the munki munki block looks good-- maybe mix it up with some simpler blocks.

your north pole quilt is looking good. i think white as the binding would be great!

So cute Amy!! If you haven't yet chosen, I think red would be good, or I like Beth and Vicki's idea of a diagonal striped binding! Maybe red and white for candy canes!!

I love the northpole, and this white doesn't look bad at all. I wouldn't have chosen it first, but seeing the batting makes me think it is not such a bad idea to use white, maybe you have some snow fabric left?
