Thrifty Thursday 6

I thought I'd combine the finish of my flowerpot quilt with a thrift store find tonight. Remember when I bought these embroidery hoops a few weeks ago? My flowerpot quilt is now mounted in one of them and hanging on my quilt gallery wall! I love it. I did end up quilting it, as most of you advised, and also added some elastic to the edges like Karen suggested, which worked out beautifully.
Here you can see the back with the elastic...
Here you can see the proof that this post really does have a thrift store find in it...(oops I better trim that edge a little more!)

And here is the finished product...The colors in this photo are very true to life...
And some closeups -

I love the tiny zig zag!

The gallery is slowly expanding...

I am so excited that I had two finishes this week. I doubt I can keep it up, but I'll give it a good try!

Your gallery is indeed looking very nice. The flower pot is just creative crazy and makes me smile. I have to admit though, that bear paw quilt under the hoops caught my eye.

Sooooooooo pretty! That's just what I want to do this year. Make more smaller quilts for little spaces and groupings. I need a little break from wrestling monster quilts into submission!

Lisa said...

Well, I liked your brown and bright combo so much I had to make something using those colors! I made a large appliqued bag for my cousin so you will have to hop over to my blog to check it out. I linked back to you today, too.
