My daughter’s quilt is STILL at the long armer’s waiting (since the beginning of October) for the magic. I expected to have it back either January or February but, as it goes when you use someone who is great at their craft, it is still waiting its turn. In addition to the quilt, she also has three 18” pillow shams.
This weekend I decided to make her throw pillows that will sit in front of each sham. The weather was gorgeous yesterday so I took the pillows to our local botanical garden to be photographed.
I used the embroidery unit to my Quattro 3 to make the center blocks
While we were there, we walked through The Orchid Room which is proof that orchids grow like weeds in south Florida.
A pretty fountain at the entrance of the gardens
What's a pond without ducks? My DH thinks these are two female Mallards.
He's pretty good with his wildlife ;)
Then of course, the resident dragon!
I know I promised pics from the recent quilt show but after going through them, I've determined they really aren't blog worthy. Part of the problem was the cramped quarters. I couldn't get enough distance between me and most of the quilts to fully capture their beauty. Another part of it is that my camera battery is dying and the biggest part...well, let's be honest, I'm not a photographer.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have an absolutely wonderful week!
