Sampler Finish

I took a little break from machine piecing to quilt this little sampler wallhanging.

This is the wallhanging that I was going to hand quilt, but I decided to machine quilt instead.  I have wanted to quilt pebbles for awhile now and the center of the Dresden plate seemed to be a perfect place for them.

I think that they look pretty good although I wish that I had used a solid thread color instead of a variegated one.

The quilting design for the inner border is – I think – called ribbon candy which I am very pleased with.  The rest of the quilting motifs that I used are okay, but need more practice.  I know – I am my own worst critic!

I have been invited to a sewing retreat this weekend with my middle daughter and her friend, so I have been busy deciding on projects to take and getting them ready.  There was time this week to get the middle section on the green Lincoln block done.  I will have a picture of that next week.

Happy Sewing,

Marlene

    I have come to the same conclusion about variegated thread. But I love what you did and a small project is a great place to practice.
