Two quilted and one to go.

This past week I got the facings on the first 'voice' piece and the second one quilted. These two were quilted with a variegated thread that has been in my stash at least seven years. I finally found the perfect place for it, and I have most of the cone left.

It really blended well with the wide array of colors on the cloth. I'll be doing something different with the last piece, I'm thinking this may be the one for the lower part of the quilt.
The top third will be quilted with yellow thread. You can see the bit of hand stitching that I've done on this piece. I've used a wonderful hand dyed #3 thread that I won from Laura Wasilowski. Another find in my stash.

My plan is to have all three done by this time next week.

The Weekly Leaf

I bought a new leaf stencil recently, so of course I had to use it.

Week #37

Now that new stencil has been added to my increasingly large leaf stencil collection, many of which I've used only once. I may need some intervention here if I keep collecting.

Daily Stitching updates

Gelli prints #250-256

Shades of Orange #177-183

Later in the week I'll be linking up to "Off the Wall Friday" and "Slow Sunday Stitching"


  1. I love using variegated threads and your choices are perfect. As for having too many leaf stencils remember what Mae West said, "Too much of a good thing can be wonderful".

  2. The gelli prints with stitch is so inspiring. I really want to try this!

  3. A fern stencil - I want one! Your fern came out great and it looks like it was fairly fast and easy. Love me some ferns!

  4. Oh the fern is absolutely wonderful! Looks like a fun project

  5. LOL... love that line "may need some intervention if I keep collecting"! I can relate!
    Beautiful stitching.... enjoy!

  6. Your leaves are delightfully detailed. So wonderful. PS I think we all need a certain amount of intervention with this hobby.
