and other topics I’ve missed telling about… Lots of pictures
It’s been busy around the shop.. I take the pictures, celebrate the finishes, but have little time to crop, resize and post. Lately, it seems, there are so many last minute gifts, graduation, wedding, even weddings in my family that require pause for designing and executing that special quilt to make the bride and groom know how much I love them. So here in not any specific order I have loaded some interesting images from the past few weeks that need recording.
I gave this amazing embroidery artist a lesson on how to bind this work of extreme motherly love. Libby executed this hand-embroidered masterpiece over the last year to honor little steps in her daughter’s life, bits of clothing embellished with perfect embroidery to represent a lifetime of memories.
A yearlong ( at least) project. Holly reprised a family heirloom for contemporary appreciation, ie. her couch. She mended and quilted the old suit strips so it will last another 100 years. What’s next Holly?
Cathryn put so much thought and planning into her sampler. And then it was on our Gammill frame – now officially a quilt.
I quilted this patchwork with a retro geometric pattern. I have another quilt top from Janine to finish this week and, to think, she’s a knitter.
Quilt camp was a huge success. Not just the food, but the number of projects finished and started in three short days.
Big piles of cut fabric turned into quilts.
What MP finished and what she will be starting after camp…
