I have procrastinated too long about showing some of the quilts and embroideries I have stitched over the last 30 years. I am now rectifying this and hope to add to my journal as quilts and creations are gradually completed. I have so many unfinished projects many of these used for teaching purposes. I have decided that after the last few years during which I have been unable to stitch as much as previously it is time to try and finish as many as possible.
I hope that you enjoy looking at some of my creations as I work through this pile! It may take some time.

Hi, I haven't posted for a couple of days as I have been doing just what I should be - stitching!  As I said in an earlier post, I am trying to finish all of those unfinished projects.  Unfortunately they will not be finished in the same order that they were started.  I looked at that pile and it doesn't seem to have shrunk at all.
I have finished my hearts quilt with embroidery designs by Sarah Vedeler. http://www.sarahvedelerdesignsshop.com/Hearts-CD-for-Download-Hearts-02.htm
 The applique designs stitched out beautifully using my wonderful Bernina 830.  I used Madeira rayon for the embroidery designs and quilting. I had so much fun with the quilting.  thinking of new ways to embellish it.
It also looks as though my version of the floral visions quilt will be the next to complete - I have now finished the borders, the sashings and a couple of the blocks.  Now to get back to the workroom.


  1. WOW speechless... wish I had your talent....

  2. Wow, that's an amazing quilt. Beautiful work!

  3. Your freemotion stitching is marvelous and really complements the quilt. Bravo.

  4. Beautiful! And the freemotion! Wow!

  5. Wow! from me, too! This is really inspirational. I need to stop browsing and start stitching more, too, not to mention the UFO pile! Way to go!
