Great free motion quilting and design work. The flowers seem to sway in the breeze--created by the echo quilting. Love, love your improv work. Can't wait to see more . . .

Very mod Caraline! Love Dresden plates of any kind, but you've pushed the boat out with these flowers! Love the layered effect and look at your FMQ... you go girl! Well done!

Why thank you Mam......saying it in a posh Dunedin voice. hehe. I cannot believe that I went to sewing room with the intent of making a dresden plate and doodling some fancy stitches over the seams, looks nothing like I intended to to.....Im pleased with it, and something different for sure. Should be going to christmas part with St Peters group (if you are interested next year you would be welcome to come and share) But I have so much sewing to do and need quiet to do it.
