One of these things is not like the other...
(If you can see some of the errors made in these panels, shoot me an email at annette at sunday-special dot net with your guesses by June 12th and I'll have a prize for the winner, or randomly chosen person if there are multiples. Please note the winner will not be announced or notified until the end of June as I will be travelling.)
Now for May a completed quilt top. It is so colorful. As you can see I made mine a bit bigger by adding a scrappy border. Many of the fabrics used were from my scrap bin, stash, and a few were purchased new for the quilt. I love that some of the fabrics hold special memories for me. A couple of my favorites include some that came from my Grandma's stash that she gifted me over Christmas. One in particular is the tulips on a white background which is two below the pig. Some are from my first quilt that actually still hasn't been finished. (Sometime soon.) And that blue and white polka dot next to the ducks was used when I first was starting to relearn embroidery.
Aside from the quilting lines issue on the backing there are a few more things I would do differently next time. Use a solid border to highlight the embroidery squares or perhaps use a log cabin style block with the embroidery squares at the center. I've been hugely inspired recently by the Modern Log Cabin Quilting book and can't wait to try her technique of making log cabin blocks.
Until we meet again... Happy Stitching!
