Gathering Garden Wall Quilt

One of my favorite wall quilts is the Gathering Garden Quilt I made in 2013 and which was designed by Kim Diehl.  I appliqued the quilt using my needleturn applique method.  The fabrics were from Henry Glass designed by Kim Diehl.  The colors are rich and vibrant and the rouched flower adds dimension to the center medallion! I have it hanging in our home from a black wrought iron star ring.  Looks so nice.

Sauder Village Quilt Show 2014

I want to share with you a picture of my Cottage Garden quilt at the Sauder Village 2014 Quilt Show.  It won a beautiful red ribbon for Second Place in Large Bed Quilt Mixed Technique Machine Quilted Category!  The show was so much fun to attend and the quilts were absolutely gorgeous this year!

No Place Like Home Quilt

"No Place Like Home" Quilt
"No Place Like Home" quilt I made and wanted to put it on my blog as it is one of my first quilts and was designed by Blackbird Designs.  It is hanging in our family room and just love the warm colors and all the houses and flowers!  The top middle house even has our house number on it. The gate on the center bottom block has The Wick Family embroidered on it.  I truly enjoyed making this one!

Effie's Baskets Quilt

I have wanted to start this quilt for a while and finally the day has come!  It is a Jo Morton design that I fell in love with.  I am going to make it in very primitive colors; blacks, browns, and beiges, and the border I have in mind will make it all come together!  The blocks measure 6 3/4" and it has a very unique layout that I will share with you as I progress.

Scarlet Letter

Elizabeth Sheffield, Newport, Rhode Island, dated 1784
Reproduction Sampler by the Scarlet Letter
I made this sampler in the Years 2011-2012 and thought you would enjoy seeing it.  The colors are magnificent and that is what kept me going!  It was a lot of work, with a majority of the stitches over one thread.  I began in the upper right hand corner stitching the "blue bird".  I felt that if I could stitch him I would be able to do the rest.  I worked on this with a friend of mine, Carole, who also completed her own piece.  I have been thinking of what my next one will be!
