Michele over at Quilting Gallery is hosting a "Quilters Show and Tell". Thanks Michele!
This week the theme is "Favorite Quilt from 2012".
I entered "Folk Art Melody" into the show. I started it in 2011 and finished it in 2012.
I believe it's the first time I've entered any work into a Contest or a Show and Tell.
|Folk Art Melody - Design by Lori Smith - Taught by Debbie Wick - Hand Appliqued and Quilted by Karen Miller 2012|
More about Folk Art Melody:
This quilt is special to me... it began my love of wool applique and grew my love of Free Motion Quilting.
A friend and fellow student encouraged me to quilt it myself, rather than sending it to a Long Arm Quilter (thanks Bonnie!)....
|You can see the layers of wool used on this block. The center was 4 layers thick!|
|This block was designed by me and my friend/instructor Debbie Wick. I love it! Thanks Debbie...!|
|Each piece is cut by hand, and blanket stitched by hand. Choosing Pearle Cotton or other floss to accent!|
Again, if you have a minute, go look at the beautiful quilts and vote. There is much to admire.
Just review the pictures, scroll to the bottom of the page, and check mark up to 4 of your favorite quilts!
PS - Special thanks to my sisters -- Janet and Michele -- If it weren't for Janet I wouldn't be sewing, quilting or doing any FMQ at all. I'm very blessed to have her. As for my sister Michele, she is always encouraging and supporting me in everything I do. I'm very lucky to have them in my life.
Thanks for stopping by today and special thanks to Michele at Quilting Gallery for hosting the Show & Tell.
