July is wrapping up and I am 7 for 7 in finishing my ALYoF goals. I set my July goal here to finish two mini quilts. When I finished, I realized these two minis couldn't be more different except that they each made the recipient very happy. tears shed = success!
I do Science Periodically
Here is a close-up of the embroidery.
And a close-up of the amazing atomic dots fabric for the binding.
I used a dotty print for the backing.
I even had the chance to take some action shots in lab. Proving that I too, do science periodically.
A coworker and friend of mine recently lost her mother suddenly. I wanted to do something for her to show I was thinking about her so I slyly asked her to write down her favorite quotes.
I designed some paper pieced letters for the quote (thankfully it was a short quote!)
I kept the quilting simple - free motion flowers and leaves in the borders.
It's difficult to read in the bright light but the back is another one of her favorite quotes from Colossians 4:6
Thanks for stopping by! Check out the other finishes here. I'm also liking up with Crazy Mom Quilts and TGIFF. So happy it's almost the weekend.
