Busy quilting weekend!

I got quite a bit done on my Express Your Love quilt. I got all the sun rays done, some of her body and the applique pieces are drawn and colored using Derwent  Inktense blocks. I love the Inktense they leave such an intense color and are permanent color when dried.

I got some of her body done. I first FMQ the hearts and spiral and then painted it with old penny chrome paint. I still have a couple of sections on her, but she’s really coming to life! I improvised on a couple of of rays, my stitching just took on a life of it’s own. Most the time I really didn’t know what pattern I was going to stitch until AFTER I brought up the bobbin thread and took a few minutes to stare and think.  Here are some pics.

What do you think?
