Princess Feathers

Sorry.... as it is a little fuzzy
Well, I have finally finished the four blocks for the center of Kim's Princess Feathers pattern.   YEAH!!!!!  

I took a long hiatus from this pattern and it feels good to get back to it.  I used my "fancy stitiches" as my husband calls them to make the machine applique a little more interesting, combining it with hand applique also.

I have the borders and corners cut and have started preping them for the applique.  I plan to do a combination of machine and hand once again.  Feeling excited to get at least one border done as I truly love those birds!!will post agin once I have completed at least one border.

A Happy 2013!

Hello Everyone,

A very happy new year to you all!
I'm now back on the job having spent a month away and gave up on the computer for a good two weeks or so, I didn't think I could do it.

Hope you are all ready to do more stitching this year, love to see your work on this blog, it always amazes me to see how you interpret my patterns, it is an absolute joy to see them! Cheers, Kim McL

"Flower Power" Finished At Last

It took a while.  I bought the background fabric in August 2010 and took the first stitches in October 2010.  I finished the quilting in July 2012.  The applique and the quilting were all done by hand and I enjoyed every bit of it.  I especially loved the appliqued double circles for some reason--I never got tired of them. This quilt hangs in my family room and I get a lot of pleasure peering at it and admiring my fabric choices.  I reduced the pattern in size; my version is 57" X 64".  Thanks to Kim McLean for an irresistible pattern, and to all the Glorious Applique bloggers who kept me inspired.
