Ombre Sewing Studio

I was one of many who jumped at the chance, when Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts asked for pattern testers back in May.  

A reminder for the link up, spurred me to get it quilted and bound today.

I practiced some free motion quilting and got playful and stitched a green thread coming off the spool and meandering around and through the needle.

Check out Sew Fresh Quilts, for pattern information and to see the other versions of the Sewing Studio!
The pattern was to be sewn vertically, but because my attic sewing room has low ceilings and no long wall on which the vertical hanging would've fit, I sewed it horizontally, which also worked out nicely.

I really like the idea of the green thread connecting it all. Great idea.

Great job! I love the quilting and extra details. I think I need to go back and hand-stitch a needle to my finish since it is so cute.

Using some printed fabric help make it stand out from the others and the free hand quilting is great. The threaded needle was a unique idea.

I am so sad that I have not had your idea about the thread (kidding). Anyway, I loved it!!!
