|"Dancing on Air"|
I took on the Project Quilting challenge this year, at
We have a prompt, this time to fussy cut, each time and one week to complete it! I have a Mary Englebreit collection of fabrics,
and I wanted another mantle quilt for February (Valentine's day) so Dancing on Air was made!
While we're talking beads, I added in a tiny drop bead on a shoe, crystal beads on her tiara, and letter beads for the word at the bottom. Love is the basis to everything right?
Freehand machine quilted with cotton and metallic threads, little growing heart vines!
I left extra fabric at the top sides to pull to the back to finish those edges. I left extra backing fabric at top and bottom to pull to the front to finish those sides! It's about 9" X 10"
Next up was the Round robin challenge, to use the block, "piano keys" somewhere on your center.
I added in some white confetti fabric on the right side, a Mary Englebreit fabric along the bottom, and went looking for some cute sewing motif fabrics in my stash
so many to choose from... all happy and fun! Some of them I put aside to fill in as the challenge continues. I want the finished quilt to hang over my cutting table so it can't get too big, therefore I only put one border on this time
there are sewing tools, clothing, patchwork, and of course a flamingo. The aqua fabric 2nd from right has a pink poodle in it too!
yesterday (HERE) I posted pictures of my painted lady quiltlet, with discussion of how I made her...
She is inked on muslin surrounded by pink scrap fabrics. Love!
Just to continue this pink theme, encouraged by the Rainbow Scrap Challenge to use our pink scraps this month, I made probably the best muffins I've ever had... (recipe to come on tuesday)
