Joslann’s 1st Year Quilt

Share

I made this special quilt memory for Joslann’s first birthday at the request of her mother, Anna Martin and her grandmother Joanne Parish.  It was made from her first year clothes, including her christening dress.  The outfits are appliqued on.  All of the fabric used in this quilt is all from our shop including the Quilters Blenders Light Pink quilt backing.  It is quilted it in the Ribbon Hearts design, which I love!

Embroidered Flowers Quilt

This Amazing quilt was made by Charlotte Worrell of Bristol, FL.  It features hand embroidered flowers with incredible detail on muslin squares.  The squares are stripped together with tonal vineyard green fabric surrounded by a contrasting paisley and floral print.  I quilted it with butterflies, flowers and grass.

Incredible job, Charlotte!
