This is a blog about me and my activities, not soup to nuts though because I don't go near the kitchen.

Progress on the Hawaiian Quilt
I have finished nine of the squares although I could possibly do some of them over. I am getting better at the applique. Today I thought I would mark the quilting pattern on one of the better appliques and try quilting it. I am going to quilt each square and then put them together. The book I am using gives the desired quilting pattern. But what a chore to mark it! Perhaps if my applique was exact it could have been easier and this was my best applique. This was the design .
It was a challenge to mark because my applique wasn't as even as it should have been
I will quilt the applique in its color and the background in silver. I have two more squares done, the Iris and Hibiscus.
I am a retired electrical engineer. I am the 5th generation to live in Detroit. My hubby, dad, brother, uncles and cousins and I all worked for the auto industry. I hate to cook! I like anything to do with a needle, not for shooting up but for pulling thread. Two of my daughters have a blog and I decided I wanted one too. My hubby said no one would read it.
