I received a down comforter that I resized to put on the inside. Let me tell you, the feathers were a mess to work with. I knew that I didn't want to cut, then pin and have feathers a flyin' so I drew my cutting line right on the comforter. Next I fed that baby thru my serger and cut and sewed all in one fell swoop. I'm giving myself a pat on the back for that little stroke of genius! Then I promptly called the boys to come running with the vacuum cleaner.
I just love the color of this block with Goldilocks and all her flower bouquets. I think I had a dress like she's wearing when I was a little girl. Did you?
And here is the finished product. I know this will be a treasured gift from mother to daughter. Working on this project is making me want to try another needlepoint project. Oh the nastalgia of it all!
