I like Ricci's more than mine. (Oh, so what else is new?)
She did some couching with Superior Threads "Razzle Dazzle" by Ricky Tims. Then look at the cool cording she placed down the sides.
Mine is very simple, because I basically just wanted to learn the technique. I used some left over scraps of red and yellow.
I really had fun and will be making more. I might even fancy this one up with some embellishments.
Dotti of Apples Quilts and More just did a post today showing her baskets and some really great ideas for gifts.
Isn't nature amazing? Look at the beautiful yellow flowers growing right next to the long needles.
I just checked The Quilt Pattern Shoppe web site and they are celebrating their First Anniversary by having a GIVE AWAY on their blog! They are offering a $30 gift certificate. You know what that means don't you? We all have a chance to download quite a few of their patterns right from the comfort of our own homes. Make sure to check them out HERE and tell your friends.
