Jan's Wildflowers Quilts are both finished!

These two quilts will be delivered on March 7th to Thimble Pleasures, along with many others.  Jan requested on overall design that did not crowd the embroidery.  With the correct thread, you can successfully quilt over the embroidery with out interfering with the look.  We used Superior thread's Sew Fine #403, a khaki color that truly blends.

Robin's Stack-n-Whack is finished!

Robin decided against a lot of contrast in color for this stack-n-whack.  Just goes to show that sometimes you have to take bold chances in order to produce quilts that are truly unique and beautiful.  It was custom quilted using 7 different patterns.  This quilt is a very special gift to be presented to the recipient next month.
