|a fun little flower using neocolour crayons and derwent pencils|
I drew up a quick flower and using Clear Aloe Vera gel as a medium. I painted the flower, I just let it flow and had fun. The Quilt Rat has a great tutorial on using Aloe Vera Gel. No idea what I'm doing with the flower yet.
All this playing is before I use either of these techniques on my Guild Challenge for our upcoming Quilt Show June 9 & 10, 2017.
I wanted to highlight some areas of the applique. I will do a post with more photos later, when the project is finished.

My guild has put together kits of donated fabric for quilt tops, I took this one home to work on. Some are panels as this one was, some have strips or bits and pieces of fabric. Tweety was a panel and I bordered it with two other fabrics a lovely green print and a nice yellow floral print. I used a piece of backing from my stash and quilted this one together quickly. I added a couple hearts and stitched in the word love.

|how about the heart?|
I used some straight lines on the inner borders and loops in the outer border keeping the quilt soft. Added a flange border, this quilt will be donated to Ronald MacDonald House through my guild.
That wraps up my quilting week in a nutshell. How was your week?
