Quilt Retreat at Mary's Quilt Shop, Bedford, PA
Visiting from Australia, Quilt Designer Di Ford-Hall taught several classes at Mary's Quilt Shop in October 2015. I attended her Broidere Perse classes. This is the center of a beautiful quilt that she is designing! I really seem to be enjoying this technique. I will keep you posted on my progress.

I want to share with all my fellow quilters and friends one of my designs that I loved making! I made Potter's Charm for one of my favorite Polish Pottery dishes. It is all hand done! The circles are appliqued, the leaves and vine embroidered, and I hand quilted it. This is a sneak preview as I am anxiously awaiting the magazine to appear in my mailbox!! (January 2016)

I was thrilled to meet Di Ford-Hall this Fall in Bedford, Pennsylvania. I attended her classes on Broidere Perse which were amazing! I coincidentally had started making this quilt last October which was designed by her! I am now hand quilting it this winter. I wanted to make it into a Christmas Garden quilt, since I work at a wonderful Christmas shop in Elmira, New York, called The Christmas House! I have always wanted to make an old-fashioned red, green, and cream quilt. I believe I counted 318 berries in the appliqued border!
