Finishing things is the name of the game this week and Monday saw two things finished.
I finally got the quilting, ruffle, organza flowers and leaves on the 50’s fabric challenge from Karen Musgrave (more info here and on Karen’s blog). It’s fun and funky and I really like it—now! It was okay without that lime green, but the green really makes it pop.
Details–flower and little bits of grassy green.
Gosh, my quilting stitches look HUGE here. They really aren’t that bad…reallly!
The quick and easy piece that just needed a backing and a tiny bit of additional quilting to hold it together was actually the first piece I finished today. Spring Dress Parade went with me to Florida for beading, and your opinion was that the flower part needed some beads, too. I didn’t bead all the flowers because I wanted to keep the focus on the dress forms. A bit of beading on the flowers, though, did help to pull all the parts together.
Here’s a detail shot of a couple of the flowers.
Finishing is fun! Hope to continue finishing things all week…HOPE to! I’ll certainly keep you in the loop!
