Blossoms for Spring!




I'm heading off to work here in a few minutes, but I wanted to show you something pretty I've been quilting on! These are Elizabeth's embroidery blocks..I set them together at retreat, and today I finished the quilting. It feels so much like spring! I quilted with the windows open and a gentle breeze wafting in...I could hear the neighbors revving up their lawn mower for the first time this season...

For you in the frozen north...never fear...spring is coming!

Bonie, I am always taken aback when seing what your quilting does with the quilt-tops... It is a magic!!!
You do such a great job!!! Happy spring...
Oh, I just wanted to let you know that I stopped writing my blog - what is more - I totally deleted it, I tell you just because you were so kind and put a link to it on yours - thanks for your understanding.
Best wishes,

What a soft, pretty girly-girl quilt. And the swirls that you quilted on it makes me thinks of the warm spring breezes. Was that your intent?

HOw beautiful! The more I see of your quilting the more impressed I am. :)

I really like the way the quilting makes the embroidery stand out. Excellent work!

I just love the quilt. Did you digitize your own designs, are they available for purchase, or is there a source for the designs that you used? Combining quilting and machine embroidery in quilts is a favorite design format for me.
