Early in the month I made St. Patrick's Day "cards" for my great-nieces and nephews. Today I finished Easter cards as well. I forgot to take a photo of the St. Pat's cards before I put them in the mail. I've been having fun making something to send the kids.
|I didn't create this design. It's from Embroidery Library.|
For the St. Pat's cards I scanned a shamrock and used
IQ Designer on my Destiny to create the design.
|I didn't want to cut off all the feathers.|
|I had to use a recognizable piece of the given red fabric. I made red piping.|
The quilting is similar, but I marked the outside edge first then stayed
within the boundary.
|This is the quilt I gave my sister this month in honor of her award. I|
tried making a beaded fringe, but it wasn't adding to the quilt. I cut
off the beads and left it plain. Actually a good choice.
I have three quilts in Best of The Valley quilt show. April 7 - 9, Lindsay CA. Although I never expect to get a ribbon, it's always exciting to see if there is one on the quilt when I get there.
As I finish writing this it doesn't seem like a lot of projects, but it felt like I was at the machine a lot this month. I'm still working on finishing projects and getting them out of the studio. That's why I finished the challenge. It's already delivered . . . . . out of the studio!
Thanks for checking in.
