I hope you have all been having a good week.
First of all, I'd like to thank everyone who voted for my Geckos in last weeks Quilting Bloggers competition.
To my delight, I won! My prize is a set of 4 patterns from JoJo's Quilt Shoppe . I cannot wait to receive them.
Also the same quilt made it into the final selections for Bloggers Quilt Festival - amazed at this as there were over 600 entries - a lot of beautiful quilts! So thank you everyone who voted for my work!
Ok, so what have I been up to this week? Well I've been working ( or should I say wrestling) with the butterfly quilt.
I started by outlining the butterflies and stippling the blue background with a very light lilac thread which has a high sheen to it.
For the leaves, I quilted some veins using a varigated thread.
In the next border I decided to quilt pebbles becasue I love the effect......
I confess I have started another quilt/ throw. I needed a mindless little project to do in between quilting this so I've been having some fun making string blocks. I also have a pile of multi coloured squares left over from the rainbow border of the butterfly quilt so I had to do something with them now didn't I ?
I'll show pictures in tmy next post.
Til next time
