more of the same...

Not much but this happening, for a few more days anyway...
All the flowers are quilted....


One short border and 3/4 of a long side are done..


I have quilted in the thin green border along the white lines of the check. Made it easy to follow and forgiving of any crooked stitches too as they are hard to see.
I am quilting close to the edge of the butterflies then doing a meandering trail from each butterfly to add some quilting to the cream border. Hopefully all the 'hooping' hasn't stretched the edge too much. I can't wait to put some binding on...but I shouldn't jump the gun now.



These lovely fabrics arrived this week to add to my jelly roll and few fat quarters of Rural Jardin. They are from Le Petite Ecole and one is a rural Jardin. I am going to add to these slowly and then decide on a project to use them for. I think they would make great hexagons.....
Speaking of hexagons my adopted flower garden top has gone to the quilters and won't be back till February as the shop closes over Christmas. I can't wait.

Hope you have had a lovely week
Weekend here we come!
Have a good one.
cheers
Marina

I love the look that handquilting gives to a quilt ... so soft and you can see the love!
You've done a fantastic job and deserve a medal!

Have you had a blog facelift or am I just only noticing a change?
It's very sweet!
