    Default Bluebonnets quilt finished

    This is the Bluebonnets pattern by Carol Morrissey. You can't really tell from the picture but these bluebonnets are enormous. The body of the quilt is 36 x 46 and framed it finishes at 47 x 57. There is no paint on this quilt. All the color is intrinsic to the batik fabric. I quilted this myself on my Brother PC420. I FMQ some swirls in the sky to give the impression of wind. I got a little carried away and now it accidentally looks like Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh. Oops. Live and learn. Still, I'm really happy with the progress I am making with FMQ.

    I absolutely love this! Don't usually like bluebonnet things. They look fake. (being from Texas also, we know real bluebonnets, huh?) But this looks real! Great job.
