Tweet Dreams

The challenge for this week was Wish Upon a Star.  Anything with a star, just as long as you use your imagination.  I wanted to try out some new thread.  Glow in the Dark thread by Coats and Clark to be exact.  I had picked up the thread for another project, but I thought how cute it would be to have something quilted that the kids would enjoy when the lights go out.  So Tweet Dreams was born....  I drew out the birds and leaves.  The rest is all a bunch of scrap pieces from my stash.

I tried to add a bit of fiber to the nest.  A few bits and pieces of brown yarn, I had in my stash.  I really liked the added texture to the nest.

He is sky writting.  Tweet dreams to the little ones.  So, there it is all finished up. The star and the tweet dreams is all quilted with the glow in the dark thread.  It really works.  I tried to take a picture, but it didn't give out enough light to see with the camera.  The kids love it. I had a fabulous time participating in the fouth challenge at Persimon Dreams.  Go and check out the other creations.

  2. It is just gorgeous Amy, I love the writing in the quilting!

  3. Oh. My. Goodness. This is by far the cutest thing I've ever seen! I love your quilting and how it spells out 'Tweet Dreams' and the twigs in the nest are perfect! Great job!

  5. Oh, how cute!!! I especially like the leaves and the fiber next. I love using glow in the dark threads. Kids love them too. I think the embroidery flosses glow the most.

  6. Ooooh -- I love that little nest!
