I have not posted in awhile because I often do not take pictures of my quilts and projects until they are finished. My new quilting machine has been fun to learn on and so I finished a Husker Cow for my grandsons birthday. It gave me a chance to play with different threads before putting "Express Your Love" on it.
I love the buttons on the utter. My grandson has a things for cows which no one knows for sure why, and of course he loves football and the Huskers. He has a great sense of humor and should find the buttons on the utter very funny.
Here is the progress on my Goddess. I did the micro zippling in the brick as Leah suggested. However I still am not ready to try Boomerangs. Just not happy yet with my practice samples. But I had to laugh at myself because it took me a week to get over the fear of trying McTavishing and put it into the quilt. I was on a thread mission at the Road to California Quilt show last month and found this beautiful variegated Isacord thread called Saffron. I love that it has just enough white in it that blended in so nicely with the white that was used in the outline.
Today I am tacking the concentric circles. I chose to do these in Isacord: Autumn Leaf. It picked up some of the color in the Saffron.
