Home Sweet Home Progress

Setting up the embroidery machine, figuring out dimensions for multiple hoopings and changing the pattern on Home Sweet Home has caused me to put off doing the outside borders.  Today I resisted the urge to go take a nap and powered through 1 60 inch side border.  This is going to be our "Growing up San Diego" quilt so I embroidered one side with the 3 addresses where Greg grew up.  Got the swags glued on so now I have some evening hand work.  Took 6 hours to do the measuring and the embroidery.

There are different communities in San Diego but I stuck with "San Diego" for the ones within the San Diego City Limit
This is the right side border-I can't wait to get this done.  My deadline is the 3rd Wed in Sept.  but want it done before.  Wasn't sure what color thread I wanted but this ended up being perfect.

What a cool idea. I love the houses and the addresses. Have a great weekend!

This is really looking elegant. Of course, house quilts have always been one of my favorite styles.
