Okay so the post title is my poor effort at being funny with a play on words.
The Midnight Garden toile quilt top is now totally done!
Here it is in all its glory hanging on my design wall( aka table cloth tacked above closet door)!
Binding fabric will be same as the black in the patchwork squares.
This was before sewing all squares and such together.
A floor dry run..;-)
The toile had to be cut so all was facing in right direction!
Center design. A goodly size wall hanging for sure.
Excuse messy cutting table there!
I do really work in here after all.
The baskets are lovely. Diana stitched hers in black .
The colors are not showing up 'real' at all!
I dyed the stitchery fabric myself.
We did change the flower designs a bit.
She added beads to her blooms too.
So now to get layered and on the needle.
I think I have it worked out how I will quilt it.
Next one up is mine. I stitched in a dark red.
My red & cream toile fabric has a bit smaller design on it then the black one.
So mine will not be as large as this one.
Feels good to have one well on the way to finished!
Lovely warm day here today 82F!!!
Nice breeze dried the pretty whites on the line.
Flowers, trees and bushes all bloomed out!
So hoping we have a nice seasonable long Spring.
Do not want Summer just yet!
The Long Road Home.
