Gold and black...continued

Thanks for your input Kathy and Cathy! 
I left out the white, but added just a touch.
It's a cross between a dragon and a fleur de lis, I drew it up and traced it onto heat fuse & ironed it onto the white, cut, cut, snip, then onto the black block...  
I think it adds just a touch that tags the quilt as being fit for medieval decor. 

Next to find the perfect backing material then on to the quilting frame.

Which one? I'm trying to decide if the golds and blacks need some contrast with an off white.

If you visit, leave me a comment with your opinion.

Comfort quilts

Yesterday I took this little stack of 6 quilts to a women's shelter in town. They have 28 total beds, including cribs, so this is such a small dent in a need.

Getting Ready...

I am staging. Getting ready for a craft fair at a church the first week of Nov.
It is a big event with hundreds of vendors, all handmade things!

I borrowed a bakers rack for display, and will have a 6 foot table. My space will be 8ft by 5ft. I will need to move the quilts on the lower rack to the table to try and get them accessible for people. 
I have  been sewing hard to get ready, and will include the quilts in my etsy shop. I have 2 quilts to finish (on the chair) and will have a total of 11 quilts. Lots of mug rugs, coasters, table runners, some patchwork scarves, quilted scarves, and some JOY garland.
A girlfriend will put in some terrific crocheted afghans also.
I'll post a picture of the real thing in November!

Summer is over

Transformation Quilt

This is the quilt that was on the quilting frame 2 posts back. 
I finished up the binding last night and washed it this morning. 
 I'm calling it the "Transformation Quilt",
 because it is full of butterflies and positive affirmation words. 
I have a passion to make quilts with positive words stitched in.  To embrace a wounded soul or to encourage self esteem.  Whether it is to help a cancer patient thru the process or to help the verbally abused overcome, it is simply to comfort a single heart and lift a single burden. That is my dream. 
Have a blessed weekend.
