Monique made this cute table topper for her SIL and asked that the quilting not be too heavy and allow the back to have the appearance of a whole cloth--her SIL wants to use the flip side when she has her friends over for card games. I used a cream Sew Fine on the top and gold Magna-Glide prewound bobbins for the back.
Donna V. loves putting her own twist on her work and this was no exception. Donna took a class on Hawaiian applique and used a decidedly New Mexican figure, Kokopelli, as her main focus. It was Donna's request that I use my imagination and do 'whatever'. I used Sew Fine thread on top and Magna-Glide pre-wound bobbins. My DH helped with marking the outer border areas and I spent quite a bit of time with rulers, hunched over the machine to get the effects I wanted.
Manx kittens, Harley (red, short twisted tail)) and Jasper (buff, no tail), have come to live in the Fuller Household...they are fun, fast and furry, and a wonderful addition to our menagerie. They have been with us for two weeks and already we have to kitten proof anything within reach--and their reach has definitely expanded!!
