Katie sent this …and I believe it’s an embroidery set design by smith street designs. It’s a beautiful quilt and I have seen it before. I quilted it in my typical style of mixing lots of different designs in each block.
She did a great job on all of the embroidery. All of the fabrics are different batiks and they just came together beautifully.
Thanks Katie! It’s always a pleasure working with you!
Katrina brought this to me for the computer quilting special and I thought it was so cute! I was also super excited to try this circle design. I had tried a circle design on one of my own quilts early on…and it turned out well…but I was super upset because it wasn’t an “all-over” design so honestly I had to sit and babysit the machine because it had to be reset every single set…which took all day and it was exhausting. I loved how the quilt turned out but knew I would not do that every again….what a hassle. So I found a different design to accomplish the same look that will let me do an all over design. So I was able to test this out and it worked fabulous! Thank goodness!
It’s difficult to see…but they are perfect and fabulous!
Thanks Katrina! So glad to quilt for you! I hope to see you at MOdern quilt guild.
While I was in England I started this project. Even though I only had a back pack to fit in 3 weeks worth of clothing I knew I would have to take a hand embroidery project. I had plenty of time on planes, trains and automobiles….not to have something to work on. I also had plenty of time in hotel rooms ect that I just enjoyed working on my needle work.
I took only blue threads to challenge myself ( blue is kind of my least favorite color….I mean there isn’t a color that I don’t like….but I find that I am not “attracted” to blue as much. I use it when I need to..but it’s not my “go-to”) but also to keep it simple. I knew I couldn’t haul a bunch of different colored threads…so I needed to keep it simple.
I am also not “IN LOVE” with this penny project. I actually have another blue penny project started and I think I am going to add red threads….just to change it up and maybe I will like it a bit better. I also don’t know how creative I felt about these pennies. I didn’t think about them a whole lot and I just worked on them here and there. Most of them were done during the trip to England.
I have a few friend that I think I could gift this too….:)
I hope you all have a super fabulous day! I am finishing up a quilt and working on a few projects. I am also going to start doing some more videos ect. It’s time to get back into routine. It’s been awhile. 🙂
