It's October, so it must be time for Rosette # 10. I went searching through my pictures and I realized I hadn't taken a picture of the Rosette before it was pieced into the quilt. Therefore, today I am sharing pictures of the rosette in the process of being quilted.
One half of the rosette is made from assorted Halloween Cotton + Steel. I just love the ghost dresses.
The second part of the rosette has the apple fabric. As soon as this post is done, I'm going to finish quilting this one.
I love to play with fabric with texture lines, so this is what the lions look like.
The pandas are a little more sedate with a simple outline.
A special friend that likes orange has a birthday tomorrow so I made her a little pincushion/binder clip holder.
Last post someone who is a no reply blogger asked why I filled the pincushion with walnut shells, and where you get them. Walnut shells add a nice weight, and they won't dull your pins is the why. The where has a few answers. Some quilt stores carry them, but my local store didn't have any in. A gun shop carries them for cleaning brass shells, but I found them a little expensive. My local "Princess Auto" carries them in a very large bag for sand blasting. So the my option was Kitty Litter made from Walnut shells. I bought a brand called naturally fresh from Bosleys.
Linking up with Finish It Up Friday!
