No DJ Block Today

I'm in the process of preparing a couple of applique DJ blocks that I will work on at the July 7th meeting of my guild's Dear Jane group, so I don't have any completed blocks to show today. But since I don't like to post without a picture, here's another one of my early projects, a small wallhanging. It was the first quilted piece that I had entered in my guild's first exhibit back in 2000. It's quite amateurish, but I wanted to have something to show, so this is what I came up with. I call it "Midnight in Moscow". I used a buttonhole stitch around the towers, echo machine quilted in the dark blue, and used metallic gold thread to hand stitch the crosses on the onion domes and the stars and moon in the sky.

Thank you Myra. I enjoyed looking at the quilt photos on your site as well. Quilters create such wonderful eye candy!
