I've been concentrating on some small projects for the boutique at my guild's quilt show in the spring.  They seem to take longer than large quilts!  Lots of small, fussy cutting, no assembly line piecing, trying to use lots of fabrics - all time consuming.
 I managed to get the quilting  and binding finished on the pastel table topper.  These colours are outside my comfort zone!  I used gold variegated thread to stitch the small motifs in the flower squares and also to stitch the free-form feathers in the gold border.  Green variegated thread for the swirls in the teal/green border, and white to stitch leaves and curliques in the background areas.  The rest was done with "invisible" thread, stitching in the ditch.  
One thing about making small projects - they are great places to try out new designs in quilting and practice - no sore shoulders from manipulating a large quilt through a small machine!


  1. *So* pretty, Susan — and not outside my comfort zone at all! ;)

  2. Oh this is gorgeous!!! You did an amazing job with it.
