While packing my trunk show, I decided to switch the quilts that were hanging about here at home.
This is "Bloom Where You're Planted"; a quilt that I finished in 1996. It was a year long class and we learned a technique a month.
This is the first time I added lettering to a quilt - they are a little too spread out, but I got better at it.
The pattern was created by Irma Gail Hatcher and here is the original. Mine is quite a bit different.
I learned ruching fabric.
I also inked the initials of our family members.
these are stuffed grapes.
It's a big one - about 100" square. I really love the double diamond quilting. It is the only one I've quilted this way.
I also hung my Olympic Star quilt. The quilting texture looks good with this overhead light.
The best view is coming up from the lower level.
Have a great week!
