Me and My Shadow

Aaarrrrggghhhh! Still trying to get the hand of this posting business. I had my entry all ready to post, pressed a button and eeekkk! Where did it go? My effort is floating in internet space somewhere never to be seen again. Alas! So for my second attempt.............I finished the hand applique on my quilt top yesterday. This is a Primitives by Lynda pattern called Me and My Shadow. Been working on it for a couple months. Tons of applique but so worth doing. Today I pieced the backing and cut the cotton batt for when I have a few hours to baste it for hand quilting. This will be one of my winter projects. Next post will be my second winter project. These pictures are a lot brighter than my quilt top is. It is a darker top in person and I used a lot of muted coloring for the applique and background. It's wonderful.
