Lotus Blossom

I have been wanting to make a quilt with bias binding for so long and finally found this perfect applique project from Pile 0' Fabric. It came together pretty quick and I love how it turned out. This is on my Q4 FAL list.  I wanted to make one more with green background and petals in grey tones, may be in the near future. 
Applique petals and bias binding just pressed on to background fabric.
Finished Blossom Wall Hanging

Quilted heavily between petals and wide stippling around.

Backing with hanging loops and corner triangles sewn.

Binding done with beautiful Art Gallery Fabrics by Pat Bravo.

HST Blue Baby Quilt

I have finished one of the Baby quilts I started in November of 2015. It stayed in the closet because I couldn't decide on the backing and binding. Its listed #2 on my FinishAlong goals. I just quilted and bound it in September. The backing is an orange calico fabric from Joann fabrics, I had for almost 5 years and I believe it suits the quilt front.
