Have you checked out the Aurifil Designer of the Month Blog yet? The MARCH BLOCK is up, and guess what? It's me! You can hop over there to download the "Spring if We're LUCKY" pattern.
I was feeling a bit girlie girl when I put this pillow together. Ruffles and flowers, pinks and greens, oh my! I added some other little panels of flowers in the patchwork around the outside...Now I just need to find a good home for it... For some sweet wee girl...
Stitching is something that I have been doing more and more of, and incorporating elements of embroidery into my quilts. I've found, since I put away my paints and paint brushes to quilt full time, that drawing little doodles for embroideries have been keeping me connected to my fine art background.
A while back I was inspired by some embroidered dresser scarves of birds that my grandmother made. I drew up a few of my own "BIRDS of PARADISE" and with the help of my mother, (she made a few of these pieced blocks a year ago when I taught her to foundation sew) I put this top together to show them off! It truly is a Family inspired project!
You can purchase the Birds of Paradise at my website, click here.
Thanks for stopping by!
I'm off to doodle a few more designs!
