After my class its taking me a while to get back into the swing of things... First I would like to show off one of my students work.
Design on the top of a hat she made.
*******Then of course I have been talking to Arlene Baker about her wonderful flower mold reproductions (See other post labeled Arlene Baker) She sent me a sample of what she thought I was looking for plus some some extras...
I chose # 8 and of course the first thing I did when I received it was not follow the instructions. I very carefully made these flowers out of my synthetic Lame fabric... They and a variety of other colors with adorn the border of the quilt.
It was so much fun I ordered # 1 and #21.

Fabrics for a future project. The fuchsia/cranberry cotton velvet is from Delectable Mountain Fabrics, the white with the grid is from my friend Gloria's stash, and the variety of silk organza's and coordinating tulle is from MOOD... and of course Opie the cat must sit on whatever I put down... except he will not sit on my lap...
Now I am back to my Lame quilt project. I have completed all the circles and 1/2 of the background. I spent the last several days ironing on the 1 inch Lame squares onto the second half of the background fabric and I am about 1/4 of the way through embroidering the sequins and beads around the squares.
Hopefully by the end of next week I will have the embroidery done and will start the borders.
Enjoying the spring weather!!
