Who loves orchids…..

My son Jonathan gave me this lovely orchid last Mother’s Day…..not knowing too much about orchids …..I watered and ignored……this lovely flower started reblooming on December 28th this past year….this is how it currently looks….another Mother’s Day surprise?πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•learning to love orchids….especially from my children…#loveorchids…..

It’s finished……

imageThought I would share how I finished this lovely quilt…..opted for a simple swag inner border and a feather outer border…you can never go wrong with feathers….the red thread I think complements the overall look but a little subtle for a good photo..πŸ˜”πŸ˜”another one in the books…..

It has been a little while…..

Sharing a sneak peek of another beautifully pieced quilt by good friend Marylou …..piecing is very well done that lent itself to some ruler work and Β my free motion…..crossing my fingers she will love it as much as I do…will be moving into the borders soon…😊😊 ….will share again with the borders…..using my rulers from thequiltedpineapple.com……#freemotionquilting
