"The border around the star received a lot of Asian-inspired floral applique. I love working with the bias strips, the curves distracts the eye from the bland tan. I was able to use flowers that are basically constructed from the same shape as the star is & then brought same green prints back in for leaves - all 85 of them. The butterflies are my personal favorite, a small feature to help define this as a garden. They were fussy cut & colored with sharpie pens to get the colors right"

"Urban Beads" quilt by Sew Kind of Wonderful. One of my absolute favorite quilts of all time. I love every single thing about it!
oh my, this is lovely. The progression of shading is good -- but it really points out the difference that good quilting makes to a basic pattern. Wow.
this is a real work of art. Wish I quilted
I LUV purple and this is totally awesome. Beautiful quilt, the colors are gorgeous and the quilting is magnificent. I wonder if I will ever get this good at quilting!!
red and white quilt - beautiful quilting! I wish I had this kind of talent!
Quilt or Art? Definitely both! A quilt becomes art when its context transcends its function. With imagination, there is treasure to be harvested from all sizes, shapes, and prints in fabric! Never throw any of it away!
Love this gorgeous randomness.
This pattern is Simply Sixties Quilt Pattern by Anka's Treasures.

Large focal fabrics used in long strippy blocks. I love this idea! I wouldn't feel so bad about cutting up some of those really cute focus fabric prints I have!
These blocks are a great way to practice your machine quilting in a smaller area
