First off, is this queen size quilt that I hand-quilted for my Mom. I had made the top a few years ago, and she was going to hand-quilt it. But she passed it back to me to do... :o) It has a puffy batting and I just did a minimum amount of hand-quilting on it, that kind of echoes the *Trip Around The World* pattern.
This next project was for a customer thru the local quilt shop. He brought in this quilt that he said his grandmother made, that was a *family heirloom*. The problem was, every single bit of hand-embroidery that she had done, was GONE! Who lets a *family heirloom* get to that point. I am all for using quilts, but take care of them before they completely fall apart! HA! Anyways, I re-did all the hand-embroidery. There are 6 large blocks on it. To me, it is rather drab, but I do like the finished embroidery. :o)
So like I said, now I can start concentrating on some projects that are more fun... :) Here is a little peek at the items I am getting put together for Beatrice for our F-R-I-E-N-D-S swap! I hope she likes what I have come up with for her... :o)
