Flower, Posies, Daisies

Shirley L's super flower quilt. Wow all that
hand turned applique, makes my finger hurt
just thinking about it. I am not the hand girl,
after all, it is a four letter word. But I can
certainly admire those that do use the hand word.

Just those close up pics for your inspection....

more close ups...

yep more...

I know, I know, more...

and yes more still...

finally the last one.

Deb Bradley pieced this and I appliqued the balls and bat,
and quilted it. This was a commissioned quilt for a baby boy.

Here is a close up of the baseball and bat.

Here you can see the football.

The back is a soft and cuddly Minky.
Who doesn't love a Minky back?
So soft!

What just came off the machine

 Lovely little wool applique, so adorable.
 I should make one of these.
Or someone could make it for me and I will quilt it. Yes, that sounds good.

Applique Floral Heart

Just off the machine and ready to go homeShirley L's Appliqued Flower Heart quilt. This is one of those friendship exchanges. I am sure Shirley did the center medallion and the setting of course. This is a great layout for these blocks. It is about 72" square. I stitched the sashing in the ditch, stippled the applique backgrounds, I did a feather in the inner border, a feather fill in medallion background and straight lines in the outer border.

Here is the inner border close up.

Block detail.

Outer border detail.

Close up of the background fill of the center medallion.

Thread Ball

I was cleaning my Gammill machine today and when I emptied my thread catcher this was
what the ball looked like. I think it's very artsy. What do you think?
