|Notice the sign in the background under the Duck quilt??!!! :^)|
My quilt is still not done even after a year!!! I am close though!!! I still need to quilt on the opposite diagonal and put a binding on it.
I decided to put the applique rose on my quilt because we won the Rose Bowl last January!!!!!!!!
|My rose. I looked for Copyright free pics of roses, then enlarged mine and changed it a bit to make is applique friendly. Here I am tracing the pattern and cutting out the pieces.|
|Yes, that's my 56 year old hand giving you an idea of how large the rose it!!|
|All the pieced on the quilt. I did a machine blanket stitch to attach the applique to the quilt.|
|All pinned and ready for quilting!!|
|Quilting with my Juki. I must say, I don't enjoy quilting a large quilt on a small machine. It isn't the easiest project to do and can get quite frustrating!!! It also doesn't help that I wait until the last minute to get things done!!!|
|The rose after being quilted!|
|My wavy diagonal quilting!|
|Close up of the rose! I'm pleased with how it turned out.|
Take care everyone, Happy Quilting, and keep those scissors sharp :^) GO DUCKS!!!!! Martha
