BLOCKAPALOOZA QUILT ALONG
This was Thursday's (2/24) new block
This is Monday's (2/28) new block
This wallhanging was a 2010 BOM. Simple paper pieced blocks from Regina Grewe:
I just used my serpentine stitch and varigated brown thread to machine quilt. My two son's are fighting over it.
A small mandela cross stitch. There are a lot of beads in this and mix of silk and hand dyed floss were used. It is quilted and fabric framed.
If you have some special fabrics you want to showcase, the snowball block is a great way to set them. I made this wallhanging with some left over charms and used 1.5" squares to make the corners. Quilted each snowball with metallic thread for a little bling. Done in 'baby' prints, this would make a fast, cute baby shower gift.
"I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze."
- William Wordsworth, Daffodils
