Roses for Janie

Framed Roses made by Janie. 
Soft pastel colors, all rose print fabrics
framed in solid greens. 
   Quilted with Zen Roses, an e2e from One Song Needle Arts and Digi-tech
with wool batting and a variegated So Fine #40 thread in soft greens,
#707 Wagga Wagga, funny name :0)

The wool batting has such nice loft.
The binding will also be a darker green to create a frame around the
entire quilt. It's actually not as dark a green as it looks in the pix.
After binding is added, this quilt will be ready for Janie
when she returns next week to work on Amaretto Cottage,
a quilt we have been working on together for a year. 
We are almost ready to add the final two borders and then quilting this beauty.

Also in the works are the Snowman quilts
Two customers worked on and finished this block of the month
Merry Merry Snowmen
with machine applique and hand embroidered details.
It's really cute and fun to work on :0)
 There are several snowmen peeking out of the blocks.
 This guy is up in the cornerstone of the border and will have beads added for eyes
and more embellishments will be added once the tops are quilted.

I am very happy with my Innova and how nice it handles hand guided
as well as doing ruler work. 

Enjoy the weekend
Make the time to take some stitches, Jo
