Quilt With Us

This time of year is always super busy for me. This week I got to work on an absolutely stunning hand appliqued Nutcracker quilt. She not only hand appliqued it, it has so many tiny embellishments on each block. Buttons, beads, and glittery threads. She made it for her daughter and grandson and the whole time I was working on it I just kept thinking how lucky her daughter and grandson are. This quilt is hands down the most beautiful quilt I've had the pleasure of quilting! I am going to try and talk her into entering it at the International Quilt Festival in Chicago. Hopefully I can persuade her because it certainly deserves an award (Before my quilting) 

I hope your machines are humming along and you are getting those Christmas gifts done! Enjoy!

Thank you PQ! I delivered this beauty yesterday and she was very pleased! I asked her how long it took her to complete this quilt and she told me 1 year. She also has to now have surgery on her thumb from all the hand work she does. Ouch!

Beautifully done - both the applique AND the quilting.

Thank you ladies! Janet, I think I recall her telling me this took her 2 years to complete, but I'm not 100% positive. That day was really busy! I will ask her again though!

It's beautiful Roxann, You both did an amazing job.

WOW!  I wonder how long it took her to do all that applique.  Your quilting really enhances it too.

Thank you everyone! I can't wait for her to see it! All of her fabrics came from her stash and her attention to detail is amazing. I wish there was some way to show it all but unfortunately I just don't have the right camera or camera skills to capture it. Every time I worked on a new block I noticed a hidden little treasure! Just stunning!

Oh my goodness!  I hope she will consider entering this quilt in a competition show, crediting you with the quilting, of course -- It is fabulous!

Amazing!  Not only is her work beautiful, but she is lucky to have had such a talented quilter to highlight her talent.  Hats off to both of you!
