WIP and FAL #2


I finished the girl’s version of High Tea which gives me my second FAL for the 4th quarter (FAL wish list).  I went a little overboard with the quilting but it was good therapy for me.  It helped to keep my mind off of Tango’s passing.  This was the pattern that I tested for Adrianne from On the Windy Side.  I also have a boy’s version in our local football team’s colours.  It is waiting for time on the longarm.

First I just did this design in pink and I was happy with it….or so I thought.


Then I came back in with orange thread and added the inner petals filled in with pebbles.  Still not satisfied I added the inner orange loops.


Then I decided to fill the orange loops with thread to give it more dimension.  I was happy with the final design and moved on to work on the next row.  Then I got the bright idea to do some dense quilting in the background to allow the design to really pop forward.  I lost track of how much time I put into the FMQ in the 15 white squares but it was substantial.



Leftovers IV is still on the longarm.  Here is a sneak peak at the quilting I’ve done so far.


I’ve also been working on a commission quilt for my Massage Therapist.  She gave me an inspiration pillowcase and then left the rest up to me so that she would be surprised.
