This is one of the first projects I made when I started quilting some years ago. At that time I thought that putting together a lot of square blocks would make a square piece without any measuring. I can promise you, I was wrong!! So, for several years this piece have been a part of my "re-do pile". It had a wide, heavy handquilted border, but after hours with ripping, ripping and ripping, it finally turned out like this. As you can see at the bottom of the piece, it's not perfect - but much better than it was. And I like the colours....

#4 has flowers made of painted vlisofix (wonder under?) and some silver foil for the stems. This panel is heavily quilted with free-hand zig zag stitches. That made the flowers "pop out" rather nice, I think.
I like making french knots, so I added some as a finish.
The panels were finished in April I think, but we have had many weeks with lovely weather here, so I've been busy in the garden - no time for blogging!!

In the latest issue of Quilting Arts I found the idea of how to collect patterns for free motion quilting. A very good idea!! Much better than digging through all those practice sandwiches..... Each page is 5 x 7" - large enough to see the patterns, and small enough to stitch quickly.

The next one is a monoprint - I used a knitting needle and acrylic paint on a piece of glass. Before I printed, I ironed the cut out flowers from the first piece on the background fabric. When the piece was dry, I added some foiled flowers. This one is also heavely quilted - and both have some hand embroidery as a finish.
