This last week has been a fabulous week! My sister Laura from Pennsylvania came out to visit me to do some quilt stuff and other crafty fun and boy did we get a lot done. She also came to visit her daughters family here and she is probably getting much needed rest from our adventurous and exhausting week! Normally, both of us agree that quilting is rather relaxing activity, but not at the pace we did! It was indeed rewarding and loads of FUN!
So here we are showing off our newest joint project! This cornucopia pattern was in the last Quilt Sampler magazine. It normally was created with using felted wool and was beautiful. We decided to use batiks because we wanted it to blend this with a earlier fall quilt hanging we did a couple years ago and plus the fact we didn't want to invest in wool just quite yet! Maybe some day I will do something with felted wool. I have added some bead work to the tendrils since photographing this.
This will be Quilt project #50. The next couple of days I will show off quilt #51 that we also did this week and then I'll show other crafty fun as well! Back to work tomorrow!
