What I did this summer:)

Inspired by Hawaiian quilts, I designed this whole cloth quilt. 
Appliquick machine applique with thread sketching,
then tapuntoed and lots of FMQ. 

Blue ribbon at the Cocheco Quilt Show this past weekend.

The shells were marked before FMQ.

Cocheco Quilters challenge : Original design
inspired by the poem Stopping By Woods... by Robert Frost.
Thread painted deer, couched threads and lots of FMQ.
