I write. I quilt. I cook. I take photographs. What else is there?

GIMQ

This is my Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt by Bonnie Hunter.  I flip flopped some of the colors to give it more of an island feel.  I call it Island Girl.  I just finished sandwiching it now and am beginning quilting giant tropical-type flowers all across it tomorrow.  Shouldn't take long.


Thanks Bonnie for another great one!

15 in (20)15

I didn't do so well on my 14 in (20)14, mostly because I had health problems. While I'm not well, I'm better and I know how to manage my "good" time better.  So, I should be able to do these 15 this year (list on sidebar).  Note, I was careful to put in plenty of small quilts and leave room for three new ones.

Done!

My little flower quilt is done!  WooHoo!  It's hanging on an slanted ceiling. Guess I'll have to make a wood frame for it or something. Isn't it pretty, though?

Look at the little poofy butterfly I fussy cut in the bottom picture.

The background for this quilt was made with genuine 60s and 70s fabrics using a Katharine Guerrier pattern. The applique is fused, top-stitched with rayon thread to give it a sparkle.





Thanks for Visiting! Come Back Soon!
