Another New Project
I am posting this blog per my husband's request...he thought it was a great idea to share. My new love in quilting is doing miniature whole cloth quilts. I've taken it a step further this week and am doing small pieces to be framed. The first one is a scrap piece of drawn thread work layered with Radiance fabric, miniature McTavishing feathering in the corners and freshwater pearls added for embellishment. It measures 3x4" and is a thank you gift for Carolie Hensley from The Cotton Patch.
The second piece is quilted on cotton sateen and measures 4 1/2" square. Each of these was quilted with Superior Threads' Bottom Line thread using a Microtex Sharp needle very early in the morning when my eyes were still good!
