Please click on pictures to get a close up.

I am very impressed with Leah's blog on 365 different machine quilting samples. I have been doing a variety of different stitches on my borders and in my wall hangings for some time but with this piece I incorporated 3 or 4 of her samples in the piece. I thought you might find it interesting to see how I incorporated many different directions and stitche in the piece - especially in the sky and the border. It really sets off the scene and I am planning on using her different stitches in my work from now on.

The color of the sky is a bit 'off'' the sky photo - it is much more orange. I hope this helps you
make your borders more interesting - especially wall hangings.

Your stitches are looking nice. I'll be trying some of them fairly soon on one of my projects.
Love the crazy quilt in your header.

Thanks Carol. I did a lot of crazy patch a couple of years ago.

I did four 'Fantasies" in four different colors. I have the green Fantasy and the Brown Fantasy still - the others are in private collections.

I loved doing them but they take a lot of time - and my first love is the landscapes. So little time so much I want to do. Shirley
