If you have read my earlier posts, you know that I am in a new house....filled with boxes to unpack and treasures I can't find! I have been missing the creative bug and the quilting,. I really wanted a quilt to enter in the RAFA Arts Council show this year and thought I had a whole lot of time to do it. Well, moving intervened, no quilt had been started and I about gave it up as a lost cause again this year. But I kept thinking of this idea I had and the fabric I bought for it. So, I decided if I could make good headway on it this weekend, I would fill out the required paperwork that is due this coming Thursday.....and I would still have a month to finish the quilt before it had to be handed in. So, I dug out my fabric, my photo that was my inspiration and I have to say it has just moved right along. Quite often I find that a quilt that is really inspired, just needs to be started and it practially makes itself.
So - here is a teaser. These are the free motion threadwork embroidery leaves that I will use on my background! Each leaf has at least 5 different thread colors. I loved doing these and they came together so easily, it is almost scary!!! I think I can do it........I'm filling out the paperwork tonight! This is all you get right now.
