A finish ... and a start

I promised you a finish ....

and I finish I give you!

Arcadia Hexagon Park

all done


I love how the sun shone today, and the shadows highlighted this grandmothers garden block


I had great fun quilting this one


it was very much an organic process


and the Superior Threads Lava Lanai glows in the back light of sunshine,
it's almost golden

and after much procrastination yesterday, I loaded up a new quilt on the frame


I've been mulling this one over for a while


I had done some initial drawings

 but again, it's been quite an organic process,

and I'm loving it so far! 

Happy Quilting!

Yey! You finished her up! It looks amazing :-) Now if you throw it into the washer with a giant red soaked sheet, you too could get it to look as good as mine....
