Wherever you Go

My friend Teri is making a quilt with millions of little bubbles all over it.  She is a bubblin' fool.  I wanted to make a quilt for her, showing my appreciate for her bubbling skills.  I started with some yummy WonderFil threads:

I used some Accent (30-weight rayon), some Konfetti and Tutti (50 weight cottons), and an InvisiFil (100-weight polyester).  Yummy!

Next, using two different spools of Accent in the needle at the same time, I started the free-motion blended-thread embroidery.

Yes, I embroider on my sweet Sweet Sixteen.  Her name is Hazel.  I love her.

After I finished the letters, I made some small bubbles with the InvisiFil and some larger bubbles with the Tutti/Konfetti:

I finished the quilt with some Accent bubbles:

This morning, I found some purple bubbly fabric and bound the quilt:

I am showing this before I mail it to my friend Teri.  She was impatient and wanted to see it NOW!

I had so so so much fun making this quilt.
What word will be next?
