I am pleased with how this is turning out. I was struggling with the french knots, so I bought beads to use instead. In the center of the flowers I used amethyst and mother-of-pearl beads. Left overs from my jewelry making days. I ended up deciding to make this a wall hanging and the plan is to have more hand quilting on it than machine quilting. We'll see if I stick to that plan. =) The one thing I would do differently would be to use two strands of embroidery floss for the words instead of the #5 pearl thread. The words were too small for such a thick thread. I don't hate it, so I left it as it is and am making the mental note for next time. =)
Next up, check out this darling quilt.
Seriously, is it not the sweetest? The pattern is called Betsy's Closet by Brenda Riddle.
Jenny and Kathy are hosting a stitch along to make this darling stitchery quilt and anyone can join in on the fun! All the information for the stitch a long can be found here or here. Also, Brenda has some kits made up that you can buy with all that you will need and because I want mine to look just like the picture, I bought one. I cannot wait for it to get here so I can start!
Be sure to come back on Wednesday when I will be sharing my Bowls With Borders project. =)
