Applique' Class







I have been teaching a applique' class that is machine done but has the hand stitched look ,at Fox's in Meadville Pa. My students could not believe that it was done by machine I am posting a picture with this blog. The applique pattern is Beth Ferrier's "Summer Remembrance" . I wanted to let everyone know that I am available for teaching applique' classes in the Northwest Pennsylvania and Northeast Ohio, or will do individual classes in my home.
Be on the look out for my new patterns in the next couple of weeks.

More English Rose Garden Pictures




Here are more pictures of the English Rose Garden Quilt. Enjoy

As promised I have uploaded the wedding quilt that I finished for my Nephew this past week.

Dustin and Marrissa were married on February 14Th in Northeast Pa. It was a cold day but every

thing went off without a hitch.

My whole family flew in for the wedding so we had a lot people at our house for the past week.

I finished the quilt Saturday morning it turned out to take me a lot longer than I expected. so 150 hours later this is what it looked like. The center of the quilt is called English Rose Garden and was from a Australian Magazine. I had started it about 4 years ago and just had the center done. The last border I designed myself as I wanted to make the quilt larger than the original.

Blogs




It's amazing to me that all this time has gone by. I have been busy quilting or piecing since the last time that I posted.


This past week I worked on a custom quilt for Megens Quilt Parlor in Albion Pa. As you can see it was a Irish Chain. Megen loves feathers so this quilt got a lot. She also sent me silk batting ,the quilt turned out wonderful and I would love to hear your comments.
My Nephew Dustin is getting married on Valentines Day , of course I didn't start to make the quilt until last week. The center of the quilt I did 3 years ago in a class but hadn't finished it.
It has a lot of embroidery and I had to finnish that also along with the last 4 borders. The last border was not included in the pattern and I designed that so it would be a larger quilt.
I have two days to quilt it this week wish me luck!!!.
I will post pictures later this week.

Have a great week Quilting!!

Field of Green



As promised I have uploaded the close up pictures of the Field of Green quilt. When I started this quilt I had never bought a Batik fabric. I knew all the other people were going to do theirs in a more traditional way so I thought that I would use batik's.
My Daughter was going to be shipped out to Iraq in July of 2005 and I thought this would give me a project to keep my mine occupied.
She went shopping with me and these are the colors I came up with. The quilt was originally going to be a quilt for Andy's and my bed and the colors would fit right in.
The original pattern was from Patchworks Studio there web address is patchworkstudio.com and it was there Club Medallion for 2000.
