April Spring Quiltie

This is my Spring Quiltie for the April swap on Fabric in Altered Arts. I started with a floral fabric and lilac border. I added embroidery (French knot flowers and green grass). The purple lizard added a little interest. The entire center of the quiltie is covered by lime green tulle.

Tomorrow my granddaughters are coming for craft day. We are going to make a quilt for their mom for Mother's Day. We will be decorating demin squares with Fabrico Markers. I had planned to use bleach pens but I think it takes too long for bleach to work. They are 3 and 5 and need immediate results. Fabric markers will do this. I'll make their squares into a quilted wall hanging. I'll post pictures tomorrow.
