|This gorgeous embroidered and paper-pieced star combo coming off the frame|
|Center embroidered Eagle block - outstanding!|
|McTavishing this quilt was sooo much FUN!|
I used clear mono-poly to outline/SID and McTavish quilt the embroidered blocks, (and most were also enhanced w/quilting to ensure they lay nice and flat using the mono-poly), Rainbows Patriotic was used in the borders with Maxilock in the bobbin - my ALL-time favorite bobbin thread! Even Professional Quilt Artist, Bonnie K. Hunter uses Maxilock to quilt with...who knew?!?
Put the finishing Bauhaus panto touches on another Quilts Beyond Borders quilt:
This is QBB #7, 5 & 6 were finished up earlier this week ;-)
|Bauhaus panto from urbanelementz.com using LAVA Krakatoa|
Time for binding both of these treasures and get them ready to be shipped!
