WIP Wednesday #13

This week I completed the Rose of Sharon Wall Hanging.  I spent lots of time quilting!  Fun!!

First I went around the outside of the 'wreath flowers' then inside the vine, leaves, and flower center...

Then I quilted a round feather design in the center - you can see that I'm using a variegated thread which helps to make the quilting stand out...

And I quilted the corners with another feather design...
I finished up the flying geese and pinwheel border with a straight stitch pattern...

Added the binding and here it is!
 This will hang at the Camp! I love working with these bright colors!!  Now on to the quilt to cover the space to upstairs to help keep the heat in this winter....

The other project that I made some headway on is the  Bottled Rainbow - ticker tape quilt

Steph and I decided to reduce this project's size due to time restraints.  We are doing 3x3 instead of the standard way and they're a bit smaller too.  Steph narrowed the colors down and set the placement.  Got the background pieces attached and here's the layout  :)

We have LOTS of fabric collected and started cutting and layout pieces....  Hopefully have more pictures for next week!

All for now - happy quilting!!
