Golddigger was made in response to the DWR Challenge. I created my own English Paper Piecing templates to create the ring (my first time EPP-ing!!) and then appliquéd the completed ring to a blue background. I used various gold metallics to get the “golddigger” feel. I then appliquéd some silver metallic diamonds; I love the bling!! For the quilting, I used a gold metallic thread to cross hatch inside the ring to off set the roundness. I love the big stitches, even if that isn’t proper!

Bloggers’ Quilt Festival: Donkey-ing Around

Welcome to all visitors from BQF!! It has been very quiet around here, but please, take a look around!!!

This year, I am entering Donkey-ing Around:

Donkeying-ing Around was completed for my 4-H show in July. The doll baby of a donkey's name is Stretch, lovingly called that because his legs are about 4inches longer than planned. Stretch is made of about 273 2" squares out of Honey Honey by Kate Spain for Moda. He is minimally hand quilted at a diagonal, every other square.
