So here are a couple of the embroidery pieces.
I machine quilted it on my Tin Lizzie, experimenting with different quilting designs. Each block is a different pattern. I am having trouble photographing it well, I want capture all the different patterns I did before I give the quilt away.
Yes, Im giving it away to my Hair Stylist Colleen. She likes to wear black but she is always so sunny on the inside. These bright colors make me think of her. So on the back I found the perfect fabric, Tula Pink - Parisville. I have this fabric for a while, but did not want to cut it up. It must have been waiting for this quilt to be finished ;] Incidentally, Colleen used to do stuff like this to her daughter's hair on crazy hair day. She once told me about the time she made a birdcage out of her hair, with birds and all.
Today I am helping out with the judging for our quilt guild challenge A History Lesson. I am so looking forward to the reveal next Monday. I'll share my favs with you next week.
Monday I leave for the week to Texas for a work conference and Friday night my mom is arriving to spend Mother's Day here. Yeah!
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you get a chance to sew this week!
Love Aunti Nic
