Last week I was able to sneak in 2 little projects. This first project is an applique pattern featured in the book: Applique Outside the Linesby Piece O Cake designs. I love it. Robin pieced and appliqued this wall hanging and I think it is just beautiful.
I quilted a swirl in the borders and a swirl/circle design in the background fabric. I quilted around the applique to make it stand out.
I think the colors in this project are fantastic and it was really fun to work on this wall hanging. I think the quilting texture is just beautiful for this sweet design. Great project Robin!
This next project was completed by Emily, my dear friend. She has a way of making every quilt she works on become more than just a quilt, but one with meaning. She made this for a dear friend of hers and based it off a picture her friend found online. I would like to give credit to the artist, but I haven't been able to find that - let me know if you know who it is by. Anyway, it is just a fun little quilt and it was a joy to work on.
I free motion quilted the feather/circle design. I got the idea to do this from the yellow fabric. It had feathers throughout and I wanted to keep that design within the quilting. It was really fun to quilt.
The hexagons at the bottom are pure genius. I love how Emily puts quilts together.
Close up of the feather/circle design. It was fun. I used So Fine and Glide threads for the projects and just one layer of wool batting for both. Thanks everyone!
