I thought that I would share a few pictures of my finished red work that was hanging at our local guild show today. Sorry for the not great pictures - I will have to photograph this again in better lighting!
Here she is! Isn't it pretty.Again - sorry for the badly lit picture this is the best that I could do. The quilt is so large that it is difficult to photograph easily.
A close-up of one of the blocks. The embroideries are all done by machine in 50 weight thread and I think that they are so cute!
Another close-up showing some of the hand quilting in the border.
And the border! The quilting is all 7/8" in between and done by hand! I pieced the top and marked it with a clover blue pen. It took over 20 hours to mark the top - whew! We quilted it in the bee that I belong to The Silver Thimbles. The blue all washed out and the quilt puffed back up wonderfully!
I used a silk batting in this quilt - it hand quilted like a hot knife through butter and it is so soft and just drapes beautifully!
Hope you like it!
