Today's Finish is Tanya's newest quilt. The 9 butterflies on the white background was created using her Brother Embroidery Machine. It is a entry level machine, almost the cheapest we could find but it creates some cute designs. The butterflies came on the machine, we have yet to figure out how to get more designs.
Tanya created the pattern for this quilt. You can see below that it alternates the pink and purple blocks as it explodes outwards. Tanya echo quilted this on both sides of the seams.
Our son James took the pictures for today's as you can see the only closeup shots are the center of the quilt. We were not hiding any thing by not showing any where else (except in the full quilt shot), but he seems to like to center things).
While Tanya embroidered these butterfly's me and the kids were just amazed watching the machine spit them out. In a previous post I talked about the only fatality was one butterfly lost its life while the machine was clunking away at it the thread got stuck and the machine did not stop and it ripped a hole in the material and broke a needle. It is amazing how fast it can go from great to disaster.
One thing I always love when my son takes the camera to take pictures is the pretty things that he finds and shoots along the way. This is one of my wife's flower in the front yard.
The dandelion is one of Julia's favorite flowers to pick.
Last we have one of the leaves on one of our bushes in the front yard. It is cool how something up close can be so interesting.
