Design Wall Monday--see more great design walls on Judy's Small Quilts and Doll Quilts blog.
I gave myself a month-end deadline with the Bookshelf Quilt for my niece, Emma, that has been hogging the design wall for months. Real life interruptions will likely push back a finish, but progress is being made after a long hiatus.
Sandwiched books between the brass trimmed bookends--and another grouping of three books are stitched together now. Directions are from the Fabric at Work Bookshelf Quilt Pattern.
I also made a start on another grouping.
I did buttonhole stitch down the tails but don't have a photo of that. These cats are about 7 inches tall and need probably both more black background at the top as well as some book spines under them.
There are then a couple of embroidery pieces that need enlarging/framing for the bookshelves. Good to be working on this again.
