I have been playing around with quilting ideas...although I'm not quite sure exactly when this will be sandwiched and quilted. Right now I am toying with the idea of machine quilting the cornerstones, sashing, and border. Then hand quilting the blocks themselves. I was thinking of hand quilting diagonal lines with each row going the opposite direction from that of the row before. Nothing is set in stone though. So there is plenty of time to ponder the multitude of quilting options for this particular top.
Knitting Update: I'm really making progress on my felted teddy bear. The body is now done and I'm working on the back of the head. It's really starting to take shape and I'm getting excited about seeing it done. I'm thinking I will make a felted hat for it. And possibly even a felted flower to go on its felted hat. I have also been seeing it with a knitted lace collar of some sort (in my mind's eye, of course). Looks like I even have the perfect yarn for the lace collar. Guess I better focus on getting the bear finished first before I start accessorizing!!!
