Today was a few hours editing photographs, and a few more in the yard, collecting prunings for the burn pile, and digging out the perennial borders. Then I went off with a friend to our first quilt guild meeting. An art quilter came to speak, and to show some of her original designs.
This is a close-up of the border of one of her small quilts, with free-motion machine quilting, curved seams, hand-pieced four-patch blocks, and hand embroidery accents. I loved this quilt, and wished I'd made it. Just those small touches of embroidery elevated the quilt beyond beautiful.
