First up, is Fiesta Garden,
adding quite the pretty punch to this area of my garden. Both hubby and I are quite pleased with how this turned out. His begging me to stop after the pinwheel round was a good decision. This wall hanging finishes at 39" x 39", a perfect size.
As for the quilting, nothing was pre-planned. I started with the pinwheels, keeping things simple, but knowing I wanted leaves in the green areas,
and some way to represent water in the blue center. I consider that area a pond, with water spraying from the center. Therefore, pond ripples.
I also muted the glaring white around the pond by quilting a dense yellow stipple - worked like a charm! We consider that a sandy walkway around the pond.
Now for the second quilt, The Moon and the Stars.
This was started half-way through the event, and also used pieces leftover from other quilts. With lots of star fabric to choose from, it was my main focus for two days so that hubby wouldn't put the breaks on it too. This quilt has all of the rounds, and measures 44" x 44".
Quilting on The Moon and the Stars is a star pantograph,
and even the back is full of stars.
Some child will be over the moon and the stars to snuggle with this one!
Just want to say thank you again to Gail for hosting this round robin event - I had a lot of fun!
Thanks for following!
