June 30th, a quilt with a rainbow of colors

First I’m showing some hand quilting on the Fire Hosta Queen quilt . It will be quilted with 4 different colors, one is a metallic thread. I have never used this kind of thread before but wanted to add a little sparkle to the outside border. I did find that I can only use a short thread for it will knot quickly if to long.

  
The sparkle doesn’t show up very good on the photo.

  
  
Now the Be colorful pattern… 

  
I love this pattern and have been enjoying piecing it together.

  
First I copied all my pieces and placed in bags so as to not confuse or lose pieces.

  
  
My color choices.

  

Lastly I’m gonna sneak a picture of my sons bed with his new quilt… A made bed … Wonders of wonders!! :))

 

 

Until the next post…

    Your hand quilting looks wonderful! And the paper piecing is going to be fabulous but, oh my–it’s so complicated! (Can you tell I’ve never tried paper piecing?)
