I finally brought the Nikon D50 down so I can hook it up to the laptop and transfer pictures. Somehow I would love to get these on the same floor. Hmm I’ll have to think on that.
First I have some pictures of the progress on the fantastic purple shirt here
And here’s mine so far
And I thought you might want to see some of my quilts = traditional ones this time
The quilt in pink was machine pieced and quilted using my Bernina with the BSR (stitch regulator). Doing large quilts on the machine is boring. Really boring. I prefer hand quilting both for the appearance and the pleasure of doing this. The Russian Sunflower quilt is all hand pieced, hand appliqued and hand quilted every 1/4 in the sunflowers and in a rose leaf and crosshatch pattern in the plain setting blocks. Each sunflower has 45 pieces and piecing those tiny little triangles was a pain – so was cutting them out – and then I appliqued the sunflowers onto the base fabric. I must say I do love it!
Many things to do today so I’ll keep this short – have a great day!
