Linda, thank you so much for the lovely comments on my quilt. It is an original that I came up with for a competition. I hope to soon have the rights back so I can sell it. It is really easy, fast and has almost no waste. It was really fun to make
I've been admiring your gorgeous quilts (again! lol) and have been meaning to ask what kind of machine you use for your embroidery. I've got a Bernina that is about 3 or 4 yrs old and I've never taken the embroidery module out of the box (embarrassing to admit!). This was the year I was going to brave it, but I've ended up with other projects on my plate. I also wanted to know just how you incorprated the designs into your quilts. (You have one with a leaf design that just takes my breath away!) Do you embroider first and then piece? I guess that would make more sense than putting something big and bulky on your machine. Your work is my biggest incentive for finally taking that module out of the packing case! : )
Thanks for the compliment on my sister's quilt. It took a loooooonnng time. I started it early last summer but then put it away after only 3 of the circle blocks; which, in effect, are 4 blocks of 4 - 5" blocks. I was making quilts for all my ten grandchildren so had to get that done for Christmas. I went back to it in January and worked almost non-stop to get it done. My house is a disaster; I wouldn't take time to clean only to sew. And I hsve just mailed it last week. I counted the pieces; there were 9120 pieces, all only 1.5" wide. I don't know why I take on these things!!!!
Linda I am amazed each time I come here and look at all of your pictures again. I just went to your website and looked at all of your other work & pictures - your work is inspiring, but I can only dream! Of all your beautiful quilts I keep going back to the ones with leaves that look like they are floating. Do you ever sell your creations?
Thank you Linda.. I love those.. I will have to go get the matching fabric and do something like that for my sister in law. I think I saw the bag that was made with it... but I never saw a pattern... it would be great for a bag.
