Remember these fabrics I had shown you a couple of weeks ago in my red & green post? They are from RJR‘s Fancy Hill Farm collection. I think they are just released — it is another winner by Robyn Pandolph. I especially like the reds in the collection:
Here is a sneak peek of what I have done with the fabrics:
I had a dingbat moment with this project — I was very proud of myself at 1am one night this week for getting the project done. On the way downstairs to show my husband my latest “checked off” project, I noticed that something was amiss, QUITE amiss actually! One of the inner borders was 1/4″ larger than the rest. Keep in mind, this thing was already quilted, and all is left was the binding! I didn’t know whether to cry or scream or jump off a cliff!!! So I sat and took out every single stitch on the border to free up that section for me to re-piece the inner border with the right measurement, thinking that whole time I was such a dingbat!
Here you can see the scaling of the quilting. I love to do micro and dense quilting – in fact, I am passionate about it although I don’t get the opportunity to do it very much due to the time factor:
The center motif is adapted from an old Persian motif “prettied” up with some feathers:
Here you can see my “puffed up” flowers because of the wool batt I used:
And here is my home-machine version of McTavishing outside the wreath:
Before I leave, I want to thank you for all your comments on my doll post — armed with some “horror” cute doll stories, I am looking forward more of Baby’s destruction adventures! ;) Baby is not all destruction. She brought this home for me when she returned home from her walk with Daddy. I thought I would share it with you to top off my “bouquet” project:
Thanks for stopping by. I always love your comments. I look forward to visiting you back. Have a wonderful weekend. I shall see you next Monday!
