First off, I had a wall hanging in the Show and Tell of Quilting Gallery ( quiltinggallery.com ) over the weekend. The wall hanging is Garden Flowers. I think the show and tell was spring quilts.
I started working on our church's quilt block for Annual Conference over the weekend.
Here is my "stuff" laid out to make the block.
I have the background ready and petals and leaves traced on fusible, ready to iron onto various fabrics.
Now the leaves and stems are appliqued--using a zigzag stitch on my machine.
The flower petals are above the block.
Now the petals are all appliqued. It is time for me to add some hand stitching. Maybe tonight...
I have to show off my orchid. It is absolutely gorgeous! In the background is another wall hanging that I hand appliqued.
Last, I want to show off my recently completed spiral runner. This uses a 9 degree ruler. I always get rave reviews on these runners.
