My Blog Is Back!

Phew!  It looked like we’d lost the blog forever when we moved to our new web site but she’s back!  If you have bookmarked the old blog, the new url for the blog is:  http://blog.patsythompsondesigns.com/
 
 
When I was re-organizing my NC sewing room after the paint had dried, I finally finished up this quilt that I started a few years ago:

The flower in the center of each of these blocks was trapuntoed.  I’m not sure that any shots show the texture very well:

The background quilting on this first block is the irregular swirl and it’s quilted in a gently variegated blue polyester thread:

This next flower has a similar swirl design in the largest leaf section:

…and the orange background is quilted with a “stacked swirl” design:

Next up is a flower that has hyperquilted “vein lines” inside the largest set of petals:

…and the background is quilted with another fun design in a dark blue solid rayon thread:

The 4th flower has a hyperquilted feather inside the largest flower petals:

…and the background is another swirl design:

This is for my great niece who just turned one years old.  I’m hoping she will get hooked on bold, saturated colors right from the start!
