2015 Quilting Begins

I took some time off from blogging but not from quilting.
or embroidery.

A lot has happened since the new year, including
the embroidery machine being in the shop.

Finished up on a 35 hoodie job 
and beginning work on some other items.

Spent some time playing on the longarm
doing some thread painting on this 
cute panel that was part of my Shoebox.
The Shoebox is like a secret santa, where we gift
24 fat quarters and whatever else we want that will fit into a shoebox.
This panel is one of the amazing things that 
was in my box.

I still need to add beads, but had alot of fun highlighting the flowers

We had a retreat at the end of January, where I bound the 
sunflower quilt above and this purple and green 
And began a quilt for my daughter, Alyssa
I began with 3 charm packs
did not like how it was looking.
Sooooo, I cut each of the rows in half, shifted them around.....
and sewed them back together, with this result.
which is ok but not what I wanted,
so I cut the rows in half again in the other direction 
and sewed them back together again.
Much better!
Next are the flying geese to add in another border
Spent today adding the new border. 

Next element for this quilt involves these embroidery designs
so check back to see how I use these.

I thought I had commented, but I guess I only thought about doing it. =) I really like the sunflower quilt, and the other one would make a great pattern for American Heroes. Seems like that's how I look at all the patterns lately! I like what you are doing with the pink-bordered quilt, and hope to see it with flowers attached soon!
