Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Proverbs 31:30

I have been away too long! I hope you are having a wonderful summer, what's left of it. I have been challenged by one of my quilting buddies to finish the many things in my sewing room that are 'in progress' so to that end I have finished up three quilt tops. And I am finishing the quilt that I called ugly in an earlier post. I will post a picture of it when I am finished. I began quilting it last night and got about half way finished. I am quilting it with flowers and bugs of different kinds. This little guy pictured below is inspiration for one of the bugs I am stitching into the quilt.
He is sitting on my 'Gramma' Amaryllis. I call it that since it belonged to my Grandmother. She was a quilter as well. Free motion quilting gives so many possibilities for adding some fun to your quilts. How do you spice up your quilts? I'd love to hear your inspiration!
