I did it!
'Winter Vanilla' (55cm x 55 cm) is finished!!
Oh, do I hear some tiny applause ,o)
I was thinking hard quilting figures.
First I thought of some kind of bare branches pattern, which I saw at Leah's blog. But it was difficult to sew in those small cream background areas. Even the practicing with the pen didn't helped...
I almost gave up... until I figured and remembered the shape of vanilla flowers... and vanilla pod...
I'm pretty sure, if you think hard... you can see them here ;o)
I quilted mainly with the white thread, only the vanilla pods are quilted with the brown variegated thread.
All the squares are 1 1/2" x 1 1/2"...
so the churn dash blocks are no more than 4 1/2" x 4 1/2". The churn dash blocks I stitched in the ditch.
The backing fabric is Antique 1800's Blends from In The Beginning fabrics. I love those graphic birds and flowers! The binding fabric is dusty green from one of the Lecien's collection.
Apparently you all are now tired of my stories about 'Winter Vanilla'... I promise you this was the last tale of it ;o)
This hexagon pincushion is my other OPAM in August.
Oh, I wish I could be more productive in the future!
I wish you a great weekend;o)
PS. If you don't hear of me for a little while, it's a sign that my computer will be broken. Lately I have had big problems opening it. Maybe I must go to the computer shop instead of the quilt shop... hmmm...
