Spring Comes To Arts and Socks - Not!
So, I have been creating some springtime in my sewing room. Karen Neary introduced a bright and cheery pattern on her blog, back in January. She called it (at my suggestion, grin) Polly's Posies.
Shortly after that, I discover the 2014 Pantone Quilt challenge: Radiant Orchid hosted by Adrianne of On a Windy Day and Anne of PlayCrafts.
It was obviously meant to be. So I dove into my stash, and found some orchidish fabrics, made a quick trip the the LQS for a background fabric, and set to work. It is now finished, including the quilting and binding, and I am entering it into the challenge in the Mini Quilt Category.
Name: Polly's Orchid Posies
Pattern: Polly's Posies, by Karen Neary
Size: 36" x 12" (92 cm X 31 cm)
Date Started: 4 Feb 2014
Date Completed: 14 Mar 2014
Paper Pieced and Quilted by : Me!
Karen has some lovely free motion quilting on hers, but I mostly quilt in straight lines.
I found this in my stash, and I think it may become a wall hanging for the same room.
I am linking up with the 2014 Pantone Quilting Challenge.
You can vote for your favourites until Friday, I think. (maybe mine? :) )
