Fig Leaf and Flowers

 

 

I purchased another “Collector with a Needle” pattern by Dawn Cook-Ronningen some time ago and I have finally stolen found the time to begin the applique. 


 It took me a while to find the perfect background. I didn’t want to go the conventional route of just plain muslin. I first chose a 3 Sisters print, “Aster Manor” by Moda (the fabric on the top of the photo) but I didn’t have enough so Cyndi (Busy Thimble) came to the rescue with this gorgeous Ro Gregg from Northcott. 


 Dawn and her daughter start with a fabulous and unique antique quilt and then develop a pattern. This is the 4th I have purchased and I have loved them all. They are very concise with no adjustments necessary. However, I have (as usual) modified the pattern just a tad as a matter of personal preference. I didn’t like the stem sneaking in behind the center wreath, so I simply snipped it off and ended it abruptly at the base of the leaves. 


 Whenever I have a design that is symmetrical or needs attention to placement, I use the backbasting method.


This allows for accurate placement of pieces and since there are 183 petals along this whirling vine, I think it requires proper placement! I am having a ball with this. There are 727 petals in all (if I have counted properly) and I plan to cut each of them from a different fabric.

 You can visit the Facebook page (here) to see all the variations. There are some wonderful color combinations. Enjoy the eye candy and have a great day!

  7. One of the things that has always impressed me about your quilts is their beautiful backgrounds! You really have a talent for choosing great colors. Loved the light green you used for "Hospital Sketches" and I love the red polka dot you are using for the current quilt-along - just to mention two examples!! And now this gold background is going to be great for this project. I look forward to seeing it develop!

  10. I frequently get cold sores(which lasts for 5-6 days on my lips and its painful both physically and mentally) .. As a bodybuilder, I basically get outbreak due to the daily pressure and heat in the body.. Recently I stumbled upon my salvation. I found a herbal remedy to cure hsv completely, in just 4weeks ..

    I got to know about Dr Utu after seeing a lady's testimony online. I reached the doctor and I ordered for herpes herbal medicine. He sent the herbs to me and I started making use of them. In just 2days, the cold sores are cleared. 4weeks after medication, I went to the hospital for test of cold sores and it was completely NEGATIVE.

    By following every prescription, i was able to cure my cold sore in less than 4weeks. 100% natural herbs no after effect.
    Note: Please do let others know if this work for you.
    The doctor's email is drutuherbalcure@gmail.com
    Note : follow all instructions accordingly..

    If you are sure that you have benefited from this African herbs be courageous to inform others.

  12. How I Got My Husband back... Am so excited to share my testimony of a spell caster who brought my husband back to me. My husband and I have been married for about 6 years now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly cared about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr.Odu adebayo can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted(WhatsApp) him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and I did it and he did a spell for me. 48 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promised never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. My family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr.odu adebayo If you have any problem contact him and I guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. you can WhatsApp him(+2347055287754)or Email him at : poweroflovespell@gmail.com.
