I’m back today to show you another quilt I quilted while I was living in Nebraska last year. I got a lot of quilting done in Nebraska! And evidently didn’t blog about any of it at the time.
This one was for Kathy. I’ve quilted several quilts for Kathy, most of them with embroidered blocks that her mother embroidered, and then Kathy set into quilts. Next time, I’ll get some shots of the embroidery — that woman can stitch so perfectly — and she’s in her late 80s! I hope I’m still stitching like that at that age!
I just filled in the background with tiny stippling to make the flower wreath stand out.
Our bedroom in Nebraska was painted orange! It sort of cast a color on anything I tried to photograph in there, but it being winter, I couldn’t take them outside, so this is what I have . . . I’m a horrible photographer.
The quilt measures 90″ x 90″. I also quilted two matching pillow sham tops to go with the quilts. Kathy said her mother loves it. I think she should! They did a fantastic job on the piecing. The quilt laid so straight and flat, it made my part really easy.
Kathy called a few days ago, and has two more embroidered quilts to get quilted. I’ll ask her if I can show you the embroidery her mother does — it’s mind-boggling!
