Meanwhile back on the ranch, I've just been sewing away on Kaela and Joe's wedding quilt, Steps to the Altar:
I'm working on the appliqued trees for the Flags of the American Revolution quilt-along organized by Lori of Humble Quilts.
I tacked up the center medallion on my sewing room wall. I can see it across the hall from my bedroom.
From this far away, and especially in dim light, I see that I don't have nearly enough contrast between eagle and background.
But I do not want to re-stitch this block. I have my heart set on using a lot of this blue throughout.
I may do some off-white sashiko stitching around the perimeter of the Eagle, once the quilt is sandwiched. Any other ideas??
