Frances Bugged Me
Here is Frances. There was something about her that really, really bothered me. She was a toe grabber. It was all my own fault: I was hasty when I machine appliqued the fans down to the background. I was younger then and not as conscientious then as I am now.
Needless to say, when she came back from the long arm quilter and the quilting was exquisite, I just knew something needed to be done about the applique. So in the evenings for the past several weeks I sat under her all cozy and picked out the machine applique (blind hem stitch before you ask) and then stitched it all down by hand.
Now she is washed, which I didn't want to do before because of the big gaps in the applique. Another soft and snuggly quilt.
