I mean really!!! From an innocent, sweet “Lollipops and Lemon Drops” (dontcha just luv how that rolls off the tongue???!!!!!) to a bursting with energy presentation that exudes a spirit of life that was not anticipated! OK, that may be a wee bit “over the top”, but let’s see the current status of “Galactic Explosion”. Here is where it began….IMG_8669          An odd, random 9-patch, set in a yellow & white leafy print batik, with instructions to “quilt as desired”. This “Challenge” project was given to the S.E.A.M.S. (SouthEast Area Machine Stitchers) group I belong to. The finishes will become a traveling group of quilts that will be in state quilt events in the upcoming months. Next came some texture lines and feathers……..IMG_8672     And this afternoon, this piece’s  personality truly began to emerge……. IMG_8674       Hmmmm……kinda hard to really see………IMG_8678     A bursting star of……9-patches!!!!~!! Yup. The darker stitching is the result of a switch to my fave metallic thread! Now, a bit of a move to the background fill……………….IMG_8684 

See this post for details on products used in this project…..with the addition of the latest thread: Superior’s Variegated Gold Metallic (#025)!!!!!

More updates forthcoming……………

    Morphed is definitely the right word – You took this from some pretty fabric stitched together to a real masterpiece! It is gorgeous.
