16" Sampler


I like this size for a quick romp in my crazy quilting world. This piece grew alongside the Granddaughters' Flower Garden project...just a different take altogether on what you can do in a 16" X 16" square.
The lace motifs are from Nikki Lee's Etsy shop. She sure puts color on lace in a beguiling way.

I just wanted to play..... ;-) It's not done yet but it's close. Big stitches and lots of trim speed things up, too...

I love the intensity of these colors and the boldness of some of some of the prints. I especially loved the flowers that look like they are pleated... Did you tell us how to do that somewhere????

Even though the others already said it, I've got to exclaim about the colors in this. They shout.

EXUBERANCE!!!

And I see your own beautiful fabrics made from your garden's flowers all over it! Somehow you knew I was longing for the flowers and you provided them...you are a true friend.

It's exuberant! Your spirit must be very full right now...
