The Goodbye Quilt and Fun with Mary Lou
So I am working in somewhat of a new style. The whole background with trees and houses are pieced in Hoochy style and then I appliqué soft edged needle turn appliqué figures. For those of you who do not know, I never ever fuse my pieces nor do I do raw edge. Needle yurn appliqué is my style and passion.
The quilt above was started by my neighbor Connie who sews with me and without me in my home when I am gone.
She had done the house and any stars and we put them together. Alone one night I decided to do myself in front of the house waving goodbye up the life I knew before my husband died last May. I will be adding my three kids and six Birds for my Grandkids. There is room for me to embroider the little story.
This is what I love about story quilts- they surprise us!
Two were alike!
The quilts here are so wonderful- here is but a few
The quilt below was rated one of the highest ribbons- look at the detail! Fabulous
Oh boy love the work here in this little treasure!!! Everything about it is beautiful!
Quilt? Her work is always stunning!
Hope this inspires you to stretch! Fabulous to see these quilts!
