Ready to Quilt

I worked a little more on my Flower Challenge piece.  I edited the leaves and went ahead and machine-appliqued them to the background.

I used a very small size 9 needle, with dark invisible thread in the top and black Masterpiece in the bobbin.  I experimented with different stitches on my machine, and chose one that is a blanket stitch with a very narrow width.

That lavender pointed petal on the flower is bothering me.  I left an opening so I can add a little something to it.  Perhaps some hand-painted lace, gathered to make a ruffle?

Maybe a double layer of lace?

Tomorrow I am going to Maureen's house in Clayton to borrow back my Gammill for the day.  I will be quilting this piece, as well as the baby quilt with the bright colors and butterfly border.

My little grandbaby is getting so grown!  She is trying so hard to crawl and sit up.

Taking care of her two days a week has been a joy!
