Japanese Girls Quilt

This cute quilt belongs to Jean.  I quilted double loops in the background, daisies in the sashing and random straight lines in the border, which I call chopsticks.

More Feathered Rose

I am showing two quilts in this post – the same design, but different fabrics and quilting.

This is my design, called Feathered Rose.  Both quilts shown were made by my students, taught at my local patchwork shop.

The first quilt was made by Margaret, and she had me custom quilt her quilt with swags and straight lines in the border, and lots of feathers.  This is the second time Margaret has made this design.  The first one was a present, but this one is for her.

The second quilt was made by Jeanette, and was quilted with a freehand allover rose design.

You can see other versions of this design, including mine, here.

I have linked to Esther’s Blog for her WOW = WIPs On Wednesdays.

Australian Embroidery

This detailed and exquisitely hand embroidered quilt is made by Denise.  The design is by Linda Steele. 

I have quilted a number of these quilts, and my aim is to make my quilting as inconspicuous as possible. 

Denise’s embroidery is amazing – as you look at each block you can see more and more detail.
