It is for my Layers of Hope project for Quilting 911 and I wanted to use up some of my scraps. Although I got rid of more fabric than I had ever planned when we moved, I still feel guilty if I buy more right now.
Here is the photo I am going to use for the Layers blog and I took it to show the layers of a quilt, but also to show that it is almost finished.
At the last minute I decided to hand quilt some tulips and vines around the borders and I used a Frixion pen and cookie cutter to do this. I love Frixion pens because when I am done, the ink just irons away.
I did stitch in the ditch with this quilt and on the border edges used a star stitch in contrasting blue to give it some panache!
I am believing this will probably go to a dispatcher in West, Texas, but not really sure at this time who it will go to. All my quilts seem to choose their owners by the time they are finished!
