Finishes

Despite the fact that I feel like I've been spinning my wheels lately and not really accomplishing anything, I did manage to get a couple things finished (in between starting yet another new project.)


This is a close up of the quilting on Hip 2B Green. I used Suzanne Earley's Meandering Magic and did my own version of "funky ferns" or palm like meandering. It's a little hard to see because of the busy-ness of the fabrics. Here's a shot of the backside that gives a slightly better idea. I'll be working on the bindng tonite while watching the final "ER".

Next up are two pillowcases. I purchased them as kits at the QA show in Monroe a couple weeks ago. The fabric is a new line with hollyhocks. I would have bought the kit for a wallhanging but Janet snagged the last one! That'll teach me. Next time I'm out with Janet I really need to be on my toes and quicker to grab something that appeals to me. She also managed to beat me to a lovely pink & brown piece in another booth when we were looking for fabrics for the Urban Hobo Bag.

Isn't this fun! I dig it. Very hip 2b greed I'd say. The quilting is great, too. Fantastic job my friend. And pretty fabric you're sharing as well.

The fern quilting looks good - I keep meaning to try some more meandering magic -- it's been a while since I did any.

Did you like ER? I thought they did a nice job with the last episode.
