I've been stitching, stitching, stitching - and really loving it most of the time. Last week was a little trying for me - wondered if I bit off more than I can chew kind of thing. But, I was piecing and pressing backings for 3 quilts and when I ironed the backing for my Chocolate Covered Cherries, such a peace came over me. I call it my "JOYFUL FABRIC". (photo to come later) So, I have purposed to "enjoy" the process and let God take care of the results!
So...presenting Chocolate Covered Cherries:
Notice the little "wonky" flower on the red center of the star? (Might have to enlarge the photo) Well, that is what I chose for a quilting design. I call it "meandering wonky flowers". This was a quilt where I felt like I could practice my FMQ and still have a finished UFO! I'm very happy with the results. This is the very first "cover up" quilt I have ever made for myself. All other quilts were designed and made for some one else in mind. Hence, the pretty floral background! I've noticed I sure am drawn to large floral designs lately. I love all flowers in nature, so enjoy them on fabric, too!
