what I'm working on

I have one quilt on the frame and another one in the works on my design wall.

This quilt is on my frame and its not going so well. I thought I would put a cross hatch design in the outer border behind the applique pieces but it has turned out really ugly.  My lines are so wobbly!  What a mess!
I've decided to change the quilting around the applique to something else - not sure what yet.  For now all I see ahead of me is the job of picking out all those stitches.  That's going to take forever.

On my design wall, this little dresden plate project is going very well. 
 Nothing sewn together yet, but I am having a lot of fun making all these little wedges.

Just found your blog from a search of Ontario blogs on Quilter Blogs. Love all your quilts. Very lovely. I wondered if you are using rulers for your straight lines. They really help a lot. you can search google or youtube to find good tutorials.
