Happy Birthday Michelle
My BFF Michelle from Handcrafters House in Midland Perth is turning a significant age. Yes she will soon be 40 years young! but not till mid june. As I will be in Sydney atthe show in Darling Harvour and unable to attend her party, i got in early with a birthday gift. She loves Dragons...so this is basically 1 m square, painted on black with Lumiere acrylic metallic fabric paint, as available on this website. I have then stitched in contrasting thread...orange on blue, blue on orange plus metallic gold on the black. I have stitched zebra Flames with occasional spirals on the gold and my new fav style Spiral Cogs, on the blue/purple ribbons, looking a little SteamPunk in style. These designs will be in my new booklet "50 Shades of Quilting"....yes, you read right....and it has a cheeky subtitle...."Beyond Missionary Stippling".....yes and its coming soon. Guaranteed to "Spice up" the Free Motion Activity in your sewing room.! I know some of you have prepaid and I do apologize but the booklet wont be ready till mid june at earliest now....life gets in the way sometimes.
the gold quilting on the black is one of Michelle's designs I have borrowed...and is called Fireballs or Great Balls of Fire. It is a variation on Spirals with the zig zag action on the way out of the spiral. All will be revealed in the new booklet "50 Shades of Quilting", so stay tuned.
Off to Bali next week for a little R and R. Probably come home with a head full of tropical ideas and a bag full of Bali Batik.
Happy Birthday Michelle. XX
