I recently turned two stitching ufo's into mini quilts, each finishing about 8 x 11 (give or take).
I debated how to quilt for awhile but I just love the texture straight line quilting gives a small piece so I went with my old standby.
I downloaded the stitching pattern for this crop of flowers from somewhere but seem to have misplaced both the download and the sheet so I can't give proper credit. Anyone recognize? Please leave in comments and I'll update.
While the leaves got a bit monotonous, the bee and it's flight path along with the flowers were fun!
The applique pattern for the flowers came from the Splendid Sampler bonus blocks (here). I tried my hand at hand raw edge applique for this one just because I wanted a bit of hand work to do after I had fused it down. Would choose needle turned the next time.
I gifted these last week - one to my mom to wish her a get well and another to one of my sisters as a thank you.
I'll be linking my blocksl with Sew Cute Tuesdays, , Freemotion by the River, WIP Wednesday's, Let's Bee Social, Midweek Makers. Fabric Frenzy Friday, Finish it Up Friday and Finished or Not Friday.
Have a wonderful day!
