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:

Off the frame…..

First is Karen L’s animal quilt. It’s all appliqué using fun fabrics like corduroy and flannel. What does the fox say?


Next is Dorothy G’s quilt.  This was made for an auction donation. Hope it does well!


I’m working on the next quilt so stay tuned!


A short note about a few changes…….

I’m changing from a website format to more of a blogging format. My website name will be the same once my domain is transferred from my previous host to WordPress, but until then, it’ll have “WordPress” in the URL. My main purpose for spending hours and days setting things up in a way that is pleasing to me is so I will be able to add photos and posts from my mobile devices instead of just my laptop. I never could get my Apple products to talk to my Microsoft products! 

For those of you who are my regular clients or follow me on my website or Facebook page, please note that I am switching my business email to lauriegrant.quilts@gmail.com and my business phone number to 707-480-2170.

In the hours and days to come, I’ll be loading client quilt photos into the Gallery so you’ll be able to see my work in a more organized fashion. Please come back to have a look! Feedback is welcome as long as it’s constructive 🙂
