He looks like a pear! (Well...perhaps I shouldn't laugh. I look vaguely pear-like these days, too.)
I wanted to show you a little bit more of my doodle-y machine quilting. Click on the picture to see better detail. On this one, I doodle/quilted in some single flower motifs in red. I used a turquoise thread to make the flower "petals" on the egg flowers. Then I re-threaded my machine with orangey-yellow variegated thread and filled in the rest with more doodles. To make things interesting, I used a few different fill patterns, including my famous "flaming vine with doodle berries" in the border. That's difficult to see in this picture, unless you click on it to see the enlarged version. I wish I had taken a better picture before I sent it off.
The entire piece was machine pieced, machine appliqued, and machine quilted. The pattern is from Lisa Bergene's book, which I just adore. There are some wonderful patterns in this book, including a cute little witch that I will get to someday. Really...I will. Perhaps after the holiday doilies...but certainly before the tea party doily.
