loopy flowers in the centers of each green square. I didn't do a very good job filling the space but I still love this pattern. I wanted the yellow bricks to really pop so I filled the printed blocks with free-form feathers. They're not perfect but I'm pretty happy with how they turned out and will definitely use them again. I must have got a magic spool of Aurifil for this one... no thread emergencies, in fact I still had half a spool left after I quilted all the feathers.
Murray the Whale but had to settle for a visit to our local arboretum. I'm always grateful for beautiful "summer" days like this. Fall is NOT my season so I hang on to summer as long as I can.
A huge thank you to A Smidgen of Joy and A Quilting Jewel for sharing their stash where I was a bit low!!! I truly couldn't have done this without you:-)
