Happy Finishes

Well, I finished this last week, but life has been crazy. Finally the sun came out when I had time to take pictures. For those just tuning in, this is an embroidery piece my grandma had made many years ago. Well, she must have loved it as much as I do, because it is wearing holes in it. I used fray check on the holes, and spray baste to put it on Kona snow. Next I added the border.

Next my blossom buddy Dee drew a wonderful free motion quilting design. Then I promptly chickened out quilting it for over a year! Recently I found my big girl panties and hitched them up!


At the bottom the quilting mimics the peacock feathers.

The feathers morph into flowers near the top of the piece. Dee's design was genius, and I just love the way it turned out.

Glad you could stop by for a quick visit. Be sure to use the Fabric Tuesday button on the side bar to check out what everybody is working on!
