Cityscape, Is It Finished?
I finished the letters on the cityscape this morning. I may have to take the Y apart and move it down a bit. It looked fine until I saw it in the photo and then it seemed to curve up too much. The border is not sewn down yet so that won't be too much trouble.
I got the jungle all pinned down this morning so I thought I'd give a try at FMQ. I tried to folllow the fern pattern in the fabric. I found out that it isn't all that easy. I tried for pebbles on the driveway. I have seen that design on lots of quilts but usually it looks quite a bit better than mine. I am looking on this whole quilt as a practise piece so if it isn't perfect, maybe it will be on the next driveway. I like the shingles but on the next one I will do the first row with chalk and then draw a line as a guide for the next rows. That way I won't end up with some huge shingles in the last corner. I also outlined the house, the window, the door and the hippo. I don't think I'll do any work on the walls of the house . They are pretty colorful already and I don't think the space is large enough that it needs to be quilted down.
