Getting busy with more autumnal quilting. Using two charm packs and adding an additional 7 charms from my stash I was able to enlarge this pattern by a few more rows. Here is the free tutorial: http://www.sameliasmum.com/2012/10/fresh-diamonds-easy-quilt-tutorial.html
I liked Jenny's Thanksgiving quilt and I thought it would look great using my leftover fabric from a large quilt I made with Moda's Modern Neutrals, so I downloaded the pattern and got to work on 'Mt. Scrapmore'. I like how it turned out: a modern take on American tradition.
I forgot to add to the first items that once I had the project finished and sandwiched with stabilizer and quilt batting that I added a fabric back to hid all the stiches of the embroidery work and then when I put the rick rack about the hoop with glue the back side looked just a finished and the front sides.
Another hoop used . I used my embroidery machine to find designs and then used my letters to write verses on many of them This one however is just some cloud print material from another art project I did sometime back.. I used a light stabilizer and then quilt batting to make things seem more 3 D. Once the back hoop was on and all centered and tight I trimmed the stabilizer and batting over flow. Then to make those trimmed edges smooth I used Elmer glue to put rick rack around those edges. It works well to get about the circles as you have play with V design of the rick Rack. I have this verse on another small wall hanging I purchased many years ago, a favorite.
This has been in my to do items for a bit. Decided it was time to finish and have it ready for this Christmas season. It is a printed panel. I just put together with light quilt batting and turned the right sides out and closed up small turn hole on the bottom. Hand sewed a sleeve on the back and had a rod that fit perfect. I quilted around the window and the holy family and angel only. Back is a dark sky blue with glitter that looks like millions of stars.
