Some Changes Made

OK, I knew the center square needed "something" so I set to work on it, adding more the the appliqued grapes and embroidering a stem.  Then I wanted to embroider a berries motif on it as well, and couldn't find a pattern to use.  So, I did freehand drawings of the berries with a non-permanent marking pencil and set to work embroidering them as well, which I enjoyed doing very much.  Now, it's finished!  But, I plan to add some of the same touches to some of the quilt squares to tie it all together.



 Compare the center square as it looks now to this photo of it before I made the changes...
AND....I am very happy to announce that I received another mug coaster from Mary at Faith Fabric & Photos!  I simply added a caption to two different photos she posted, and won these great prizes!  The newest one is the aqua cup and saucer design.  Thanks SO MUCH Mary!  To visit her blog go here:

  2. It really turned out pretty....I didn't think I was going to get to see them on my big laptop for a minute. Took forever for the photos to come up. It does that after I have used it a while.

    I have all my blocks made for Roger's quilt...it is a Civil War repros...and ended up doing a log cabin...daughter and granddaughter are coming tonight so will wait till next week to sew them together. I will finally have something to show....maybe.

  4. I love what you did with this! I love seeing applique and embroidery that others do because it helps me with my own ideas as well :-) My tea cup would have looked better with a handle, but I got lazy...sorry!
