Embroidered Baskets

This stunning quilt has hand-embroidered baskets stitched by the owner’s aunt.  A very special heirloom!

The pieced blocks have a freehand quilting design and the embroidered blocks have outlining and a small meander.  The setting blocks and borders are a freehand quilting design to compliment the pieced block quilting design.

Photo Quilt

I love this super example of using photos in a quilt.  This is a precious masterpiece and I’m pretty sure the receiver would have cried to be given such a gift!

The batik fabrics are perfect with the photos.  The 4 corners have special embroidery designs.

I did all custom freehand quilting and used the sashing & the on-point brown corners as the basis for each quilting design.  The quilting for the sides tie the cream border to the quilt and then a swirl in the outer border compliments the rest of the quilting.

Embroidered Baby Quilt

SP is new to quilting but a pro at embroidery!  She saw this idea at a quilt show and together we worked out the instructions for cutting.   Her embroidery is perfect!  🙂

It is 45″ square with 6″ blocks and 6″ Nine-Patch blocks.

The pieced blocks have a freehand quilt design that coordinates with the border quilting.  I added meander quilting around the embroidery.

A new border…. and I like it!  🙂  I used a pastel variegated thread with a touch of shimmer to it.  Love the effect of Superior Rainbows thread!!

I added the binding for her and our mutual friend is hand-stitching it to the back as we speak!   I think this is a lovely baby gift!! ♥
