  1. Lovely design choices! Did you use Invisafil on this one?

    • treadlemusic says:

      Yes, I did and loved it!!! The color is a dusty lilac which blends beautifully with all the pieced colors and is just a gentle “gray” in the white/damask areas. I especially love the pebbles!!!!!!!

    Beautiful as always!

  3. Do you see kites in your stitched design? I do.

    Beautiful, as always.

    Such lovely work Doreen. It gives a real texture and interest to the whole quilt. It certainly pays to doodle your ideas first. 🙂 Enjoy the warmer weather and the rhubarb, Funnily enough we are having a rhubarb crumble for supper. Supermarket rhubarb though. 😦

  8. Oh Doreen! It is gorgeous! The stars look like flowers to me because of the FMQ! Pansies?
    Very pretty!!!

      I’m glad you see them, too! When I looked at the quilt from a bit of a distance they just “popped” out at me, also!!!! Totally unintended!!!! Fun!!!! Hugs…………………

    Love, love, love your work!

    • treadlemusic says:

      Thank you so much!!! I can’t say how much your encouraging words mean to me. I’ve been “nose to cloth” on this one and have kinda lost my perspective. LOL! So glad you came by…….blessings…………………

    I didn’t see this one coming – the center designs I mean! Over the top with this design. You planted rhubarb…haven’t had that since I was a kid. Too hot here for that. Enjoy.

    • treadlemusic says:

      The rhubarb plant is 40+ yrs old!! I took a piece from a plant that was in my mom’s garden when we moved here in ’74!!!! You are so right… does not like severe heat. A “mainstay” in the Midwest for sure!!!

    Coming along wonderfully Doreen… Easter Blessings to you as well… Karen

      I did think of you today as I saw that my plantings are breathing a warm sigh with our (finally) really warm/no jacket weather!!! The rhubarb is up but a bit rough looking (stalks are fine but the leaves have frost bite!!). I’m glad you like this one (I know that simpler patterns are your “thing”, though!!). Thanks for stopping by…hugs………
