The Wedding Quilt

The Wedding Quilt was made for my son, Cary and his wife, Stephanie.  Married in August, so I'm just a wee bit late! Appraisal listed at $3000.00, Wow! (The value of quilts always amazes me, although it really shouldn't considering I know the time and work that goes into them!)  So enjoy the pictures, as always I post way too many! :)

Original design, appliqued on the longarm.  Cotton and Silk.  Hobbs 80/20 batting.  Hand guided free motion quilted.  Superior threads, Magnifico, Art Studio and So Fine50.

Design inspired by their lives as the intertwined rings represent Cary and Stephanie positioned as the sun in the sky shining over the flowers representing their 3 children.

Beading and Crystals

11.0 seed beads! 

Quilting in progress....

thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Zig Zag Quilt

Just completed this little quilt for a friend.  This was her first experience coming to a longarmer and I think she was pleased with the outcome....it's so darn stinkin' cute!

Look closely and see the little lizards in the first and last green rows!  The rest was free-motion quilted.

(Fabric: flannel backed "silky" polyester, 1 layer poly batt and flannel backing.  ~50x52.  Quilted with Omni lime green thread.)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
