Busy day!!!

My husband spent the day watching Basketball, so I spent my day sewing. As you can see I have finished my Blue Heron. I am pleased with how he turned out. Stitching this way was time consuming but fun! I am anxious to try and apply what I have learned to a piece of my own!
I also finished this piece today. I used some of my new skills making swirls on this piece. I used a variegated thread for the machine quilting. I also added a port hole with one of my photographs transferred onto silk fabric. I hand quilted around the flowers in the photograph.
Last but not least I did a bit of paper piecing. This is a new skill for me. I have never done this before and I enjoyed it. The two quilters I get together with every couple of weeks wanted to make a quilt called the Colorful Quilt. This is the beginning of that quilt for me.

So, I feel like I had a very productive and fun Sunday. I hope all of you had a great weekend.
