Sew N Tell

Another friday and I finally finished this applique quilt!
I thought it would be so easy but i did a blanket stitch around all the lettering and it is very time consuming! Also..i didn't even notice that I'm missing another flower at the top until I took this picture! Guess I better go do that now!
I used white thread because I didn't want the threading to show or stand out.
Hope you like!   This will be a quilt I am donating to our locate shelter. I'm sure it will brighten a little girls day!

And then I just wanted to post this paw print quilt that I finished the binding on!
At first I didn't like it but it's growing on me. No way am I going to show you a close up of the shadow quilting that I did around the paw prints, it is a mess! lol

but I do like how the straight line quilting looks on the back...
And I just used the same paw print fabric for the binding as well. I just love that fabric. It was another bargain of mine. It is Michael Miller fabric from for only $2.95 yd! Can't beat that!

Thanks for looking. Be sure to check out all the other finished projects on Sew N Tell Friday!
