|This is Kim Diehl's Things that Grin in the Night. |
This was a great way to use some of my stash and sew much fun to applique, piece and quilt.

|I love this stitchery by Bare Roots. It will go perfectly on the wall where I sew.|
I didn't machine quilt this one because I embroidered with the batting already in place.
I did a running stitch with Finca #12 floss around the sections
to attach the backing to the front.
This will be in the Cocheco Quilt Guild show in October.

|Kelley's quilt on our bed. Machine appliqued flowers. It's difficult to see the quilting on the black, but it's echo quilting around the appliques and then FMQ of flowers and loops. Cross-hatched on the rest of the border.|
Mason's holding up the quilt in front of the porch.
Kelley wanted a black quilt with flowers.
I was inspired sew a modern quilt for Kelley when I saw a picture of a quilt with a similar geometric design. I added the flowers to the corners. I used Kona solids for the bright colors. The purple fabric is Seasonal Gatherings and is quilted with cross-hatching. The gray is from Simply Imagine and is quilted with vertical straight lines. The remaining color blocks are quilted with a zigzag.
