Adding in Designs

Here I have a layout of the quilting designs that I put on the quilt. Made cardboard template for the spine of my feathers.

Floating the Quilt

Sweet Magnolia

New project that I'm working on. This is how I start my quilts. I stabilize the top and sides as I advance the quilt. I float the quilt ( let the quilt hang )put in a basting stitch to keep the quilt from stifting, then SID to stabilize the quilt.

Grandma's Cream Pitcher & Incent Burner

The cream pitcher and incent burnner is in grandma's painting 1947. Grandparents in the background.

Louella P. White - Artist

This is a paint from an Artist that I loved dearly all her life. "My Grandmother" She was a wonderful artist who was will known in our area for her paintings and water colors. I'm in the process of gathering all of them and have an artist show in our small town. Many of grandma's paints were on display at the Burpee Art Museum in Rockford years ago. I believe this is where I get my talent for sketching flowers and quilting. When I was a little girl I would sit in her art studio and watch her draw and paint, now my granddaughter is learning from me. Life is wonderful!
