What I worked on yesterday

And it was truly start to finish in one day, from picking out the fabrics to finishing the binding. Of courseIi had a little fun with the quilting. I was at Sue Dario's blog yesterday and she inspired me to put the oval feather wreath in the diamonds. I used an  amazing arc from Renae Haddidin to stitch around for the oval, using my longarm. This type of feather I call lettuce leaf feather, a very easy, fun and forgiving feather as there is no backtracking.



You use Cheryl Phillips Squedge 30 ruler to cut squedges from strip sets. Then cut a few from a solid piece of background fabric for the 4 diamonds. This is really an easy topper to do even though it might look complicated. The pattern comes with the ruler.



I just had to throw in this pic of my Gerbera Daisies. I have never had this many blooms on at one time-8 of them.  And one more opened since I took this pic this weekend.

Joining in Freemotion Quilting and Sew Fresh Quilts linky parties this week. See side bar for links and go enjoy some eye candy-there's always lots to see!
