The quilting is complete and the binding and sleeve are in place. As soon as my DH gets my quilt hanger with shelf hung on the wall, I can hang my Peony wall hanging. I think he just has to put on a final coat of something or other and it will be ready to hang. Unfortunately, he had to go to Fort Smith this morning so I guess that means I'll have to wait patiently for his return. This finished about 49" X 49".
I've started another mini-quilt top but still need to quilt the last one - a Radiant Star. Here's my "Prairie Moon & Star" work in progress. Each block will have a moon & star in the center. I've cut the background pieces 6" so they will fit in my small embroidery hoop while I sew the blanket stitch around the moon & star which is fused in place. I will probably finish the blocks at 2 1/2" to 2 3/4" square - then I'll add sashing strips. Will plan a border (or not) later.
I'm looking forward to getting back with the group tomorrow night - hated to miss last week. I hope to see some Radiant Star tops near completion or completed!
