Our customers have been very busy. Kay, Linda and Sherryl brought their projects in yesterday for "Show and Tell" :
Kay S. loves batiks and the log cabin pattern so she decided to combine the two to make this gorgeous quilt.
The front is beautiful but the back really is the shop stopper. Kay used 108" backing with the pre-stamped stencil that washes out and used variegated thread to hand embroider the entire quilt (you may remember this quilt from previous posts). She spent 650 hours embroidering the back. She said she used a lot of embroidery thread. I bet!
This quilt isn't for herself or a family member. She made it as a gift for a friend. Wow! What a lucky friend. She used the scraps to make the binding (which is stunning). Great job, Kay. This is truly a masterpiece. I hope you can see the different colors of thread on the backing.
Linda D. brought in a couple of projects she's been working on. The 'turkey table runner' is a 20 minute project. Really. How cute is this?
Below is Linda's "Wreath" twister project complete with Christmas fabrics! The second picture is the backing she chose.
Linda is also a Kansas Troubles fan! She made these placemats using her 5" Twister tool and Kansas Troubles fabrics. These are so cute! Great job, Linda.
Sherryl D. brought in this block she made for the mug rugs her quilting group is making for home-bound people. What a wonderful way to give back.
