My work in progress for today is another quilt for Quilts Beyond Borders.
Quilting these tops is a great way to try out different designs and techniques while creating something that will bless someone else. Here is the quilt I finished for QBB yesterday.
I quilted the bottom rows to look like grass, the next two flowers, the next two like meandering butterfly trails, and the too rows like wind. I hope the child that receives this will love it.
Sadly, I am at a standstill after the current quilt is finished because if this:
Yikes! I am out of batting! I ordered two rolls last week. I sure hope they get here today!
In the mean time, I just may have to start something new…
I am linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIPWednesday and Let’s Bee Sewcial at Sew Fresh Quilts
Your quilting is amazing! And the cause – sew worthy! Hope your new batting arrives soon. But starting something new is always sew fun!
that butterfly quilt is gorgeous! and what a wonderful thing to do
Wow! The gradation of shading reinforced by the quilting creates a great sense of distance out of simple stripes. Love it! Also like the flower and butterfly figures added to it for focus.
Oh, the butterfly quilt is absolutely LOVELY!! Any child would be thrilled to receive it.
uh oh – is that a longarmers night mare or what. I start to panic when on roll gets low, but two empty, sends shivers up my spine. How the batting gets there soon! Sue Daurio http://suedaurio.blogspot.com/
