The Olympic quilt games has begun


This was one of my Olympic projects and yesterday I took it out of the box


and finished the stitcheries on it while watching the Olympic opening cermony.


Today I started to add the borders.  Sadly I did not have enough blue fabric for the outher border.  Have to call the quiltshop on monday to hear if she have more of the one I bought. If not I have to buy another blue, or perhaps make a scrappy border.  The hexagon borders (minus the top and bottom) and the hexagon flowers are ready to be appliqued down.


Today while watching Norway take two gold, one silver and one bronce medals I did some needleturn applique on another of my Olympic projects.  Will continue working on this one this evening.

Saying for today:

It seems like the Winter Olympics were designed especially for Norway. What a powerhouse in those cross country skiing events! Enjoy your applique while you watch.
