What's on my design wall today, I have just completed appliqueing these 20 flowers using beautiful variageted threads and a very small machine blanket stitch. Also these exotic large flower prints are just so gorgeous to use. This is the second quilt I am making using these flowers.
These are from a kit called Diane's Garden by www.detailsbydiane.com fell in love with it a Quilt festival Houston this last November. I am thinking about using the for the outer frill part of a Chuppah cover and making something with a stained glass magen Daved Star with applique on the main body of the cover. I hope black is OK to use for this purpose instead of the traditional white, this is just a thought at this stage, so, I will probably put these lovely flowers away for now till I can think more cleary on this idea.
I have been invitedto teach at the next Israeli summer workshops, now, what am I going to do about that. i think I will just do what I did last time and use the "Pyamids plus" it has been a few years since I tought this technique so I am sure there are new people who don't know it. Just hope I can get more of thesebooks and that they are not out of print from www.chitrapublications.com
that's all for today, just off to help Russ embroider his "logo" onto his jeans (he loves doing things likethat)
Bye for now
