Clam Flower #9 - Part 1
I did the blanket stitch the other way!  What a revelation.  I realized that if I put this light yellow piece on top of the blue, it would show through, so I decided to put it underneath and do the stitching onto the blue.  I like how it looks kind of like ...

Flower Inspiration
I love flowers.  I can't resist taking pictures of them.  Here are a few I took at the local park the other day. I adore this flower.  It has little yellow bits at the ends of the petals.  I wonder if the cone originally had petals too.  I'm not sure, but i...

Here is the block after layer 3 is complete: And the back. And the final block!  I love how those added light blue pieces really pop.  And the lightest green fabric is so much fun! Back of the final block.  I hope you get to quilt today! Suzy

While cleaning my sewing room last week I found a hidden project I'd completely forgotten about.  I think the top was completed at least 3-4 years ago.  It's about 1 foot square and done with fusible applique and blanket stitching.  I had fun using differen...

Clam Flower #7 - Part 1
It's time for Clam Flower #7.  I had a lot of fun fussy cutting the flower petal for this flower from a striped batik.  If you look at the two outer and middle petals you will see that the stripes are slightly different from the other two petals.  A little ...
