Sixth Motif

Inspired by Eleonora, I borrowed the center motif to create this bookmark in shades of purple. Again, in Coats hand quilting thread. My niece is delighted, because I've promised it to her.

Fifth Motif

Again, dipping into Iris Niebach's "Tatted Doilies" -- this one is Eleonora. It is made with Coats hand quilting thread. The colors are muted pastels and prettier than the scan shows. It looks especially washed out and pale next to the machine quilting "rainbow" varigated thread. I'm not really satisfied with it, as I stressed it too much when I blocked it. I'll have to try this one again!
