First I want to wish you all a blessed Valentines... from my home to you!
My honey found these tulips when we were shopping on Wednesday... we spotted 1 pot of pink ones ready to bloom and bought them!!!
When I saw the mid day sun shining on them through the skylight above I had to share this glimpse into the beauty I get to enjoy every day :)
Do you have any plans to do something special for Valentines? We don't go out ... but I plan to spend it working on Kaydence's Quilt... yet to be named :)
This flimsy features some Benartex layer cake squares I cut to charm size. The fabric line is "Owlivia" :)
Do you ever run across God moments when you quilt?Well I sure did ... SEVERAL times... while making this flimsy and with the backing as well!
I had JUST enough Raspberry fabric for the center border and the binding on this project.
I had just enough left the width of the fabric for the wider outer border I decided on... this sliver is all that was left WOF.
And here they are in my sewing room.. the backing on my design wall and the flimsy laid over my sewing chair...
So where am I in process with this quilt?
I will mark it next.. still trying to decide how to do the charms... for their quilt design. But I have border designs decided and checked and will mark them first.. hoping then to get inspiration ...
OR IDEAS FROM YOU ALL... on how to address the charms.
This will be all hand quilted in white, olive and raspberry Aurifil 28/2 thread.
I will use Pellon cotton batting and have the rasberry batik fabric already cut for the binding :)
So now I would LOVE to hear from you....
What do you think?
Do you have ideas to share for a quilting design in the charm squares??? Not into just an x in them.
Thanks in advance to those that leave me feedback...
