A real beauty... in the here and gone snow

As I mentioned in my last post, I am trying to get a little bit more cohesive with my work.  I love pink, but there's a lot of it out there, so I'm starting to work with other color/fabric combinations that delight me.  Check out this ultra-hip quilt made with glorious Echino fabric by Etsuko Furuya (drool over  more of her fabrics HERE, then buy them from a independent seller on Etsy!).

I took advantage of the ONE snowy day we've had this winter and did some decent outdoor photography.  Goal for 2012: get better at taking photos.

In an effort to do something that isn't quite straight line quilting and isn't really stippling, I decided to pull the fabric back and forth under the needle while the machine was set to straight line.  I am happy with the result, and will probably use it on many future projects.  Here's what it looks like close up:

This bad boy is for sale in my shop.  I'm hoping someone will love it and invite it to come live with them!

Super nice quilt. The colors are great, and NO pink!
