A Couple of Finishes

I've been on a roll with free-motion quilting.  
"Autumn Rose"  70" x 46"

The more I practice, the more I enjoy it.

"Scrappy Coins" 82" x 54"

Using several different designs helps to keep me entertained.

Speaking of entertainment, check out this display of holiday sweaters at the local Value Village!

Happy Thanksgiving!

"October Rain"

Here's my first fabric collage with stitching.  It finished at 21" x 24".

I used my free-motion foot and outlined everything with a neutral thread.

Then I big-stitched the background with perle 8 cotton.  
That's when I realized the name of this piece was "October Rain."

The stitching on the back makes an interesting design too!

Today I went to Buffy's house and tried some Freddy style collage.  

All you need are some scraps, scissors and a glue stick.  

Later I'll sew them down with machine quilting.

What could be more fun than that?
