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.
