Thanks for all the great comments yesterday. You really have no idea how motivating they are! I really did think I'd work on something architectural today, but somehow leaves are what I kept seeing.
amazingjust really beautifulLOVE those leaves!Kathie
Love these. Looks like it's just fun and sort of relaxing.
Just beautiful! And unique - I've never seen quilting like that, anywhere. I think what's different is the use of dark thread, so that it's more like a drawing. Endless possibilities with this...
As I came upon this blog post in my Google reader window, a big smile formed on my face. I love these. They have a playfulness to them.
Wow. that is stunning. Are you using a "regular" sewing machine using free-motion or are you using a long arm? and how did you get the dots that aren't connected to anything? Are those by hand? I'm really new to machine quilting and my machine and I are just now coming to terms with each other. Thanks for your inspirational work!
These little pieces are wonderful! I just love this leaf one. The work on your blog is always inspiring but these are over the top! Keep up the great work.
These pieces are so wonderful. I hope you keep going for a while. I put the photos of your other two up in my studio for inspiration. Thanks for sharing.
Hi Terry,This is another great piece! And very unique, too. I also have not seen anything quite like this. Keep going!Kristin F. in SC
OOOOh! I really love this one! There is something about it that is really whimsical, but not "childish". This one is my favorite so far!
All your doodles are fun but this is my favorite. The blue background is a surprise.
Gorgeous! So what happens to this square now? Does it get framed or does it become part of a larger project? Is it destined for Etsy?
I'm loving these, Terry! Keep going!
Add me to teh cheerleading section. These are so fun and gorgeous!
Oh careful Terry, it is a slippery slope before you become a full fledged machine embroiderer.j
This reminds me so much of the work of Rebecca Crompton, from the 1930s -- with a colour update. There's a pic of her work on my blog (http://margaret-cooter.blogspot.com/2008/09/rebecca-crompton.html) - she's known in Britain as an important designer-embroiderer. Good to see her "spirit" being translated to machine embroidery in the 21st century!
