I've finished the client quilt and am showing more piece part pictures.
There are machine appliqued ladybugs ... these were outline stitched, then the ladybug bodies were stitched with a 2-loop meander (the "Figure Eight Meander" from Darlene Epp's 'Pocket Guide to Freehanding - Meanderings" book.)
As I was stitching this, it occurred to me that they could also be cross-sections of mushrooms, an Ionic column top, lima beans or even .. wait for it .. Fallopian tubes and an uterus. :-)
I think I will stick with the "C" meander. :-)
Carla Barrett's excellent blog). The problem with this sashing is that if I got a distance shot to show the entire stitching, you can't SEE the stitching. If I show a close-up (as this is), you don't get the whole effect. ::shrug::
Such are my non-existent photography skills. :-)
I bought a swag template from Constantine Quilts. I *love* the look of swags and her template makes it *so* easy! She also has videos on her website that shows how the templates are to be used.
I used Superior's Highlight thread for the Hooked on Feathers (green border, previously blogged about), Superior's King Tut for the other quilting. Superior's Bottom Line was used in the bobbin.
