On top of learning to do CQ, I'm also working on a new quilt for my new bedroom..The bedroom and hopefully quilt will be done by Memorial Weekend...It's called the Triple Irish Chain...

New Technique - Shisha

Well, this didn't come out as good as I had hoped but its my first attempt at doing the Shisha Technique.

My Block After Kathy Worked On It!

Kathy, from Australia, worked on my block first..I think she did wonderful on it..

My Part on Connie's Sumptuous Block

Here is a pic of what I accomplished on Connie's Block..Here theme was the Rocky Mountain!

The pine cones are done in a Bullion Stitch.

Lupine is "French Knots"

The fish is suppose to represent rainbow trout (I know one has to use imagination for this one) - Cretan Stitch..

Pine Trees - Cretain Stitch

Black-Eyed Susan - Combination of Dmc Floss and Crewel Threads with beads...I also added a yellow butterfly.

Seam Treatments were the "Fern and Fly"

I also added a Deer or Elk button..
