Dorothy’s Evolving Quilt

My daughter is helping me make a quilt for her bed. She is picking out each design and the fabrics she wants. She has also helped sew them a few of them together, some more than others. We went to the fabric store and picked out 2 fabrics that we are going to use in each block, the rest picked from my fabric stash. I will post pictures here as we complete the blocks.

If I do not have a detailed description with the block, then I have posted more information in my blog.

Quilt Block #7

The pieces of this Water Lily were snipped out individual and lightly glued down. It was then covered with a fine white tulle and stitched down with a tight zigzag stitch..

Quilt Block #8

This elegant lady is fused down to a bright multi-colored background. I then used thread to add highlights to the hair, sewed around the body and used a decorative stitch to add even more interest to the dress. The two ready-made flowers give it that special touch. Gel pens were used on the face.
