More Weeds & Jane

The sky has been quilted on Weeds N Tweeds. The thread used for sky was variegated shades of gray. Perfect! And so was the small clamshell stencil used for the quilting!







I've rolled since the photos were taken and now I'm working on the outside borders. 


This heart was the last block to be embroidered for Miss Jane. Sorry it's blurry.










I think I had said several weeks ago that the little squares finish at 3", that is incorrect. I've trimmed them to 3", they'll finish at 2-1/2". 

This is going to be a small quilt. It's a nice change for the larger quilts I normally make.

    1. I'll have better closeup photos when I'm actively piecing the top. It feels so good to make something small for once!

  14. Your Weeds & Feeds quilting is spot on ... love how the clam shells make the clouds look so fluffy. My heart belongs to the tiny embroideries though. Lori Smith has some gorgeous designs and I can't wait to see how this quilt turns out for you.
