This will be a gift for an upcoming retirement. This photo was before I sewed on the binding, but that’s done. It’s ready to go.
I’ve had this idea for a while that I want to learn to create portraits in thread. Here is my first attempt. I sketched the portrait in pencil, then sewed it. I have a lot to learn.
This is the quilt I voted for as my Viewer’s Choice at the Austin Area Quilt Guild Show 2018.
I just finished sewing the quilt top for my next donation quilt.
I just love this quilt pattern: Falling Charms from the Missouri Star Quilt Company. They use 5″ squares (called charm packs). I like to use larger squares, anywhere from 8.5 to 10 inches. For this quilt, I cut each square from a different piece of fabric; there are no duplicates.
