What Isn’t on My Machine Bed?!

I have so many different projects going that it’s a wonder I can keep them straight! These are some four patches that are the “offset squares” for a winter quilt I’m working on. I’m also working on a Christmas table runner and hope to have the pattern available in the next few weeks. Here’s a poinsettia from it before the applique edges were finished:

Doesn’t it seem very understated? I’ve grown so accustomed to taking things over the top with thread that it almost seems foreign to me to do thread work that’s more subtle! And here’s a not so great photo of one of those purple flowers from another quilt…I’m kind of disappointed with the thread work on the flowers because it was really hard to move the piece due to the stabilizer on the backside:

Next time, I’ll know to finish all my flower edges BEFORE I add stabilizer to do the buttonhole stitches on the flourishes!
