Bittersweet Briar is hung!

Image
I have been slowly finishing the binding on the Bittersweet Briar wall hanging from Kim Diehl's book Simple Graces. This photo on the lawn washes out the colour, but made for a better background shot. I tried to take photos that showed the free motion quilting I did. Which is way easier then actually quilting black on black! This quilt is now hanging up in our house and I get a kick out if every day.  I do however think that it needs more quilting in the centre flower.  That is on my to do list, but a bit distracted with other priorities on the home front right now.  So I am just going to enjoy looking at it in the meantime. Happy quilting, Sue SA.

Pretty in pink

I thought that I didn't have much pink or purple in my stash, but I managed to find enough scraps and fat quarters in the cupboard to make this pretty cot quilt. I intended it for one of the girls at work who was expecting her first child and as luck would have it, she had a daughter.
I love four patch, but this is the first time I have used them in this combo. I really like it and think I will use it again, it was quick, easy and worked well with scraps.  Not to mention that I think the overall effect is great!  I am very happy with my own FMQ rabbits on the border, so left the centre quilting very plain.    
Although it is now Spring and the days have warmed up considerably, I wanted to use flannel for the backing.  This was the only fabric I had to buy, so I had some fun and picked sweet monkeys! : ) Happy quilting, Sue SA.
