Design Wall Monday - 8/3/15

Woo Hoo!! Another finish with time to spare before the fair!! And did I mention that for the first time the fair is having a paper piecing category?It doesn't specify EPP or not so I am trying to get all the gals from my hexie club to enter something so the category will be there again next year.

On Friday I quilted my little quilt for the antique dolly bed. I quilted white pebbles over the white hexies, outlined the red flowers in red and traced blue lines in dark blue. Very imaginative, I know!

Gotta love that texture!

There is a slight pucker at each end of the RWB diamond since the white areas are much more densely quilted but I think I can block that out. I'm really only concerned about it for the fair, after that I don't think the cats will mind one way or the other.


And this is my littly Dolly checking out the dolly quilt on her dolly bed! I'm 99% sure after a couple washings, the quilt will loosen up enough to hang over the sides of the "mattress". I love pebble quilting but it is a little stiff...

Oh, this looks so good!
I find pebbling very labor intensive. Don't even know if I could have done that much. But it looks great! : )
