30's prints

I'm very happy with how this quilt turned out. 
The 30's prints were a lot of fun to look at while I quilted. The quilting designs suit the pattern nicely and the cross hatching in the appliqué border is very traditional.

It was a long process though.

Beyond the Colour Purple

This stunning quilt is an embroidered quilt called Beyond the Colour Purple.
I quilted Free motion Victorian Feathers around the embroidery.
I also used cable and rope designs in the borders.

Elaine's quilt

This quilt has been a while in the finishing; I took it off the frame to finish some other quilts and then procrastinated about getting it finished. 
The belongs to a friend of mine and she designs quilt patterns, so please leave a comment if you are interested in the pattern.

Appliquéd Flowers

This beautifully appliquéd quilt was a pleasure to quilt.
It is finished with a scalloped edge (which was trimmed after quilting).
I did curved cross hatching and curly cue feathers to add to the appliqué design.

Dancers - Victorian Feathers

The dancer figures in this wall hanging are from a pattern by Carol Bryer Fallert.

I learned to do these Victorian Feathers in a class this summer with Karen McTavish.
I loved how it turned out.
This wall hanging is for one of my daughters.
