Venus Midnight bloom











I finished remaking a wall hanging I made last year I really like what I have done with it.


My husband says "Beuatiful, this may be your best one yet".


I took the pictures outdoors and the sun really shows off the free motion stitching even tho the piece looks a little lighter than it is. I don't suppose anyone would hang it outdoors for displaying. Light in the home would not bring out the beauty of the piece as the natural lighting does.

Quilts of Valor

Moda ( http://modafabrics.blogspot.com/2011/03/just-one-star.html ) had a challenge to make 100 quilts in 100 days for the Quilts of Valor Program ( http://www.qovf.org/index.html ). They needed star blocks to acheive this accomplishment and put out a call to quilters all over to make and donate 1 star block.
This is the awesomeness of quilters: 12,000 star blocks was donated, enough to make 1000 quilts! The generosity quilters have in their heart is beyond anything I have seen.
The Quilts of Valor program presents quilts to our injured servicemen and women.
Now that the blocks are received Moda is asking for our help once again to help assemble and do the quilting. You can read about it here on our Etsy quiltsyteam blog, dated June 25, 2011. Titled Star Light, Star Bright.....

Crazy Quilted Pincushion


So I was looking around through my bags and came upon a cream bridal lace and I thought perfect. Now it's all sewn on and I an in overkill mode, I am adding one more thing to this pin cushion.

Crazy Quilted Pincushion


The problem was I thought the pin cushion looked too bare. My solution was adding a gold metallic trim, I use to know the name of this trim but over time I have forgotten it. I really don't know if JoAnn Fabrics even carries it anymore as I have been purchasing for over 21 years and most of what I have is no longer in circulation.
After looking for and finding the perfect addition a couple of days ago, I played with the position it would take. At first I thought around the middle but no, it was perfect surrounding the crazy quilted/silk ribbon embroidered center piece.
After looking at it a while I was still not satisfied that this creation was done.

Crazy Quilted Pincushion


Something I have been working on for 2 weeks, actually more. Time seems to fly when one is busy.
The crazy quilting was made last year but the silk ribbon embroidery was done a week ago and I thought I was finished with it but something is missing.
