It’s a good thing that my husband is retired because March Break turned out to be
extremely busy. My daughter is in HIgh School and wanted to check out some
universities in the area. McMaster and Lauriantan University were on the agenda and
I tagged along for the trip to Sudbury.
Now life has settled down, I am back at work and trying to catch up on my
photos for this blog. These quilts were completed in the summer so I am going
back a few months. Nonetheless, everyone seems to enjoy a good Quilt Show.
I have two good friends who are very talented hand embroiderers, Eva being one of them.
This is one of two hand embroidered quilts that she made.
The colors are very soothing and Eva even hand quilted it as well. Did I mention that
she is also very talented in this area as well?
I love pieced backings. They add so much more interest to the back of the quilt and you
feel as if you are getting two quilts for the price of one.
This is another hand embroidered quilt. Crabapple HIll is the designer and I really like
the patterns that they create.
Eva also created this beauty. Does she ever sleep?
This quilt is hand quilted as well.
You can see her evenly spaced stitches on the back of the quilt.
The colors are really soothing in this quilt. Do you find that certain
colors draw you to a quilt and make you want to buy the pattern?
Swirls were stitched all over the quilt top. I love helping
people finish their quilts so they can be used instead of
sitting in a box or drawer somewhere, waiting to be finished.
And yes, I have quilts in a box, waiting to be finished too.
I love this light blue backing fabric. I am wanting to start a miniature
Wedding Ring Quilt and I couldn’t decide on the colors. I think that I
just found my colors.
This quilt is very graphic in nature but who can resist a black and white Quilt?
Swirls were stitched on the top and a black polyester thread was used for the top and
The backing matches the top beautifully.
Wolves anyone? I think that this may be a Robert Kauffman print. Anyone out there
know for sure?
This was fun as I was able to stitch around each of the wolves. Some guy is really
going to love this quilt.
You can see all of the wolves on the back as well.
Have a good week. Spring is almost here.
