Embroidered quilt

This is a beautifully embroidered quilt, made for a church circle. I thought the feather wreath fit so nicely inside the embroidery. The border pattern is called Dogwood by One Song Needle Arts. I love the white quilting on white fabric.

Kite quilt

Isn't this a cuite quilt? It was the customer's first quilting project, can you believe it? It turned out so well with the brightly colored kites & just right blue for the background. She wanted the quilting to look like "wind", and so we decided upon doing a freehand swirly windy looking pattern. I was happy with the outcome.
It's hard to pick, but I think my favorited color combination is the yellow/gray kite.

Pillowcase gifts

Wow, has it been since December 12 that I posted last? In a few hours it will be February already.

Here are two pillowcases I made last week to bring to a shower for a family that has just adopted two children. Middle-school and junior-high age. These are some of my all-time favorite fabrics. I hope they like em! I embroidered their name on the edge of the case, I love that little personalized touch. It only takes a few minutes to add a little hand embroidery, but I think it really adds something.

Isn't this print just delicious? You can almost tase the sprinkles on that ice-cream.

And this one has all the states & their capitals. I just think it's so much fun.

This car fabric might be my most favorite of all time. For sure in the top 5.
