Autumn Ladies Tresses

The Autumn Ladies Tresses are members of the orchid family, flowering in our garden in September. We have dozens of these delicate flowers, averaging 6" tall, around the garden. Their latin name Spiranthes spiralis reflects the way the tiny flowers spiral around the stem.

Rainbow Log Cabin - finished!

I am really pleased with the way that my quilting has emphasised the curves made by my lop-sided log cabin blocks. I had been disappointed that this did not show up originally.
As this is a present to myself, I experimented with using a fleece as the backing to make it extra snuggly. I experimented first on a journal quilt with some free quilting and found it quite hard work to move around - the fleece did not seem to slide around as well as I expected. However with the walking foot on and straight stitching it worked like a dream.

Happy Stitching!
