The red background fabric is not a common sight, and really makes the colours pop.
The plates were s.i.d. around the outer edge and the inner circle, and the blades were simply quilted with continuous long loops. The centers were trapuntoed with a second layer of Hobbs 80/20 batting for added pouf.
A lacey motif fills the negative space.
So, how did y'all feel about the SNOW this week? Honestly. Snow on April 21st. What is this world coming to? My poor daffodils have been beautifully blooming for a week or two but they were NOT happy with the freeze. I said some very unladylike words and stayed inside, quilting.
I have so many quilts on the go here it is kind of ridiculous. I am STILL three quilts behind schedule, with seven more penciled in on my calendar for the coming week. Yesterday I threw in the towel and went on a field trip with a friend. There is a Tupperware outlet in Ancaster! So we started with lunch, then Tupperware shopping. That was followed up with a stop at William Dam Seeds in West Flamborough, then off to Limeridge Mall to load up on Bath & Bodyworks product.
Since I was all stocked up on soaps, I got my hands dirty in seed-starting mix.
- Roma tomatoes
- cherry tomatoes
- cayenne peppers
