Update...and Finished!!!

The other day, I mentioned getting together with Connie and Marla to work on our Bargello Dahlias.
Well here is the stage I am at right now with mine...

Here, it is fused on the background.  Next pic shows it ready to quilt after appliqueing.

The color in the first pic is the exact color...second is in darker lighting.
It is an interesting process.

Now bound and finished....this is a pattern by Jennifer Houlden. And I won the pattern a couple of years ago.

WIP Wednesday

Ohhhh, it's so nice to be quilting again!  I enjoyed Christmas, but love being back to normal.  This morning, I finished machine quilting this customer Log Cabin quilt.
Close up...
This is a large bed size quilt pieced with outdoor type fabric. So, I quilted to match that fabric...swirls and leaves. You can't see, but the wide 3 strip border is completely leaf vines.
I also am busy hand quilting this customer quilt...
I am piecing a Big Star quilt, maybe for myself?....maybe!  We are near the end of our 100 club quilt, and getting together tomorrow with Connie, and Marla to work on our bargellos. I'll have pics next time of these ones...waiting for more quilts and orders to arrive.

Well, that's it for now folks...linking up to Monika over here...
