Montana state mini - a finish Friday
Another state mini finished! This one is for the lovely state of Montana (where I very much desire to visit one day) and is supposed to depict Lake McDonald, known for its colorful rocks and pebbles. I barely did it justice. Just Google "Lake McDonald, Montana" and see what I mean.
I used tulle for the first time in the making of this mini. I used it in layers to get the effect of depth of water while preserving a bit of reflection of the mountain. I admit that tulle does make quilting over fused (or glued in the case of the rocks) bits much easier; however, unpicking any quilting on tulle is very difficult. It is almost impossible to pick your stitches without getting a few of the tulle fibers cut too.
Only Louisiana and New York left to go. I will have to tackle them after my Mom-cation.
Thanks for reading today,
