I'm finally ahead of the seasons (well at least with this project).
This 27" square wall hanging still needs quilted but I like the way it has come together.
The fabric is Tend the Earth by Deb Strain for Moda.
The hand dyed fabric used for the flower petals was also a prize.
The green stem, yo-yo and micro border fabrics are from my stash.
And the design concept of light squares surrounded by the dark squares
came from this Pin. I think the key to this design is the micro border,
without it the contrast of the light and dark just didn't stand out.
I'm happy to have put these bits and pieces from the on-line quilting world to
good use when making my latest project.
Most likely, I'll find some quilting inspiration on-line too.
And now for the grand baby update.
Ellie is now 10 weeks old.
"Hello quilting world!"

Since I finished this quilt last night, I was hoping to be able to
take photos in the snow.......but as you see
we did not get snow, just lots of wind!
The back of the quilt features 1 left over block.
Detail quilting of heart block.......
I posted a tutorial for this block here.
This is the first time I tried
free motion quilting feathers.....
I will be doing more of these.....love this look!
