TA-DAH!! This is my October finish for OPAM.
Being part of One Project A Month has been a HUGE
help for me to get some of my unfinished projects competed.
And, to be more aggressive in actually getting quilts USEBLE.
I mean...they aren't really useable in kits or just as pieces for
a top...or as a lonely top waiting for a back. Really? Well,
I guess I've been lying to myself for a LONG time!
It's a machine embroidered flower from...
one of Sara Vedhler's designs.
I chose this thread...Superior's King Tut (sorry for the blur)
It blended fairly well on most of the quilt except the dark areas.
Oh...and hey, look! I actually did a mitered corner!
Yeah, well, I know...that's what most of you do on a regular basis.
But, me...in the 37 years I've been binding quilts, I usually do
rounded "corners". (is that an "oxymoron"?)
The thread color blended very well on the back.
It's a good thing too! I'm NOT that great of a machine quilter!
I'm trying this batting for the first time. I hope it looks good
when I wash it. There was no noticble difference while I was
quilting it on the longarm.
HELP TO FIND
I blogged a few times back about some pin cushions I made.
And, a friendly blogger visited and asked me where I bought
this fabric. Well, I went to check and see if there was
info on the selvedge and...nope. =( It's a fat quarter and
no selvedge left with information.
So...maybe one of YOU sweet visitors might
have a clue where we could find this fabric?
Please, either leave a comment, or email me if you have seen it...
somewhere, a local quilt store or?
Any help would be appreciated =)
