The Lord gave us this beautiful Sunflower. My husband and I have never had a sunflower plant before.
One of the roses from my garden.
Another post card I made using 2 new techniques. Machine quilting pebbles...I need more practice and Shadow Trapunto.
I learned about shadow trapunto from Geta's blog http://cadouri-din-inima.blogspot.com/ while checking out Sew Mama Sew May giveaways. Geta has many beautiful quilts. I am waiting to purchase some of her patterns when they come out, but wanted to try go ahead and try this method.
Next I have always loved the maple leaf block pattern. Except it is usually is a 12" block....way too big. So when my TBLOVERS2 group had a table runner swap and my quilting partner loved fall and reds and greens, it dawned upon me I could reduce the maple leaf. I designed and made this table runner.
And when the ladies of my local quilting group saw it a few wondered how it would look in brights. Well not one to make the exact same pattern. I designed this wall hanging.
And my last project to share tonight is this little pincushion. The little penguin is silk felted and is a new technique for me. I had fun making him.
