Pacific Blues Quilts ready for Embroidery,Embellishment

My Pacific Blues #1 & #2 are ready for hand embroidery and embellishment, they measure 11" x 11" each. They're both machine quilted, one with a walking foot the other I used a regular all purpose foot, can you see the difference? I'll add hand quilting too with hand embroidery. I like the look of a lot of stitching.
I also got hanging sleeves sewn onto the back of my 'Tropical' series quilts. I'm thinking of entering them in a local quilt show, I like sharing their color!
 Have you tried making anything in a series? How did you like it?


  1. Seeing your Pacific Blues project has given me an idea for using up the 'leftovers' from my Quilt-zzzz. I have a bunch of offcuts and was looking for inspiration of what to do with them. Now I know! (don't get it excited - my plan is VERY loosely based on yours).

  2. I'm not excited at all! I think the best things happen when people share ideas. 'Strip' or string type quilts are everywhere.
    Can't wait to see yours.

  3. These are so nice! I can't wait to see what your hand embroidery does to them. Embellishing is my favorite part of the project.

  4. Thank you, Pamela, Your orchid pictures are lovely, .

  5. these are lovely Janie, beautifully selected fabrics matched perfectly...
