Shoji Screen FAL#3

I can’t believe that this quilt is finally done.  I made it back in 2009 or 2010.    It hung around my studio for years because I had no idea how I wanted to quilt it and I was afraid to tackle it on my domestic machine.  It was on my 2nd and 3rd quarter FAL lists.  I even had it on my frame 3 different times before I finally finished all the free motion quilting.  I used two layers of batting: a stiff fusible one (so that it will hang flat and firm) and a high loft polyester.  It gave amazing depth to the peacocks and the flowers.  I put a sleeve on it so that it can be used as both a wall hanging or a lap quilt.  I took pictures today in the shade and in full sun.  Although the full sun pictures fade out the colours, they definitely show off the dimension created by the quilting and the double batting.

I just love how the quilting shows up on the back of the quilt….such dimension.

And of course there has to be a picture of little Tilly parked in the middle of my quilt as I hand sew the binding on.  I love the bad-hair-day-mohawk-head.  I looks like  she was giving Don the evil eye because she was sick of the flash going off in her face repeatedly.

Peek-a-boo

My little helper has to be on my lap no matter what I am doing.  She likes to peak around the monitor just to make sure I see her and to make sure I am not eating anything that she thinks she should have.

Pets on Quilts Blog Hop

Today I am joining the 2014 Pets on Quilts blog hop. Tilly loves to “help” by sitting in the middle of any and every quilt that I try to hand sew the binding on. She is so darn cute and flirty when she does it that I don’t have the heart to kick her off. Here are just a few of the many quilts her hairy, little body has graced.

She even likes to “help” with the piecing:

Wordless Wednesday – Mmmm Yogurt

The ‘kids’ love licking the empty yogurt containers. I used to buy 500ml containers so they got to ‘clean’ one every 3 days. When I switched to the 1 litre containers they had to wait a whole week. They still join me in the kitchen every morning hoping that today is the day that the container is ready for their pre-wash cycle.
