Moving on

Some stitching going on...............
   A little binding added and this one really turned out cute. Perfect for that new sewing room with the turquoise walls and red curtains! The background looks muddy in every is a gray and black pebble print :(  But it is just Phoebe's size so she will be comfortable while watching her mommy sew.

  Ripples is quilted and bound, too.  I quilted it with a horizontal meandering stitch like ripples in water. (Thanks Nicki, for pointing me in that direction.) Fancy stitching just does not show on the busy floral fabrics.
  I ran out of bobbin about midway through this one.  Luckily that was an easy fix.

 It's hot and humid here now after so much rain.  Much to hot to enjoy these two for now.   Yet two finishes allow me to move on to another finish to be and begin a new project!
  I am prepping the challenge quilt for going under the needle......details in another post to explain what I am doing.
  New project-----a little change up is in order, so I am planning a arty wall hanging based on a photo.

A link to share:
Here's a link to an article on using the Ruby Beholder at Martingale Blog.   It's not just for creating watercolor quilts, but useful for scrap quilts.  They explain better than I can.
Happy stitching.

Great job - two finishes! I like the idea of a horizontal meandering stitch - I must remember that one. Can't wait to see your new project. ~Jeanne

Look at you go, churning out the lovely finishes. I need to get in my sewing room and quilt something! : )

Nice to see the new toy is inspiring you :). When I enlarged the "muddy" picture the fabric is really nice, looks like sand and the swirls looks like water, very pretty! I can't wait to see your ideas for the arty wall hanging. Hot and humid means stay inside and sew!

Phoebe is going to love that quilt! Your Pebbles quilt is absolutely GORGEOUS! I'm glad I could repay the inspiration. I have gleaned so very, very much from you & your blog.
