Fair Isle Quilt

This is a beautiful two color quilt and finished in time for the holidays! It was beautifully pieced by Alyssa Y. (who happens to be my daughter 😊) and fun to quilt.  With the red tone on tone fabric, it was all about the texture.  The pattern, Fair Isle Quilt, is included in the book, Winter Wonderland- 12 Cozy Christmas Quilts (www.itssewemma.com). More photos to see if you click here:

Embroidered Beauty!

This is a beautiful machine embroidered appliqué wall hanging. It’s a stunning work of art so the quilting was just an enhancement. I used a variegated shiny thread from Superior Threads – LAVA, Fireworks. It’s a bit hard to see in this image but it looks great on the black background. To see photos of the back, click here:

Painted Lady – Birthday Gift

My quilt guild, the Carquinez Strait Stitchers (www.cssquilter.org), makes and gives a quilt top to each member on their 70th birthday. This time it was for Marilyn! The houses were made with fabric from Kaffe Fassett fabrics. Here’s a picture of the entire quilt. For more photos, click here:
