More details, and the beginning of Sabrina's quilt


Here I go--I began with Sabrina's name as I started  making her quilt.  I finally decided to choose blue for the lettering.  Lots of blocks to follow--that will be fun for me.  And I'm posting close-up photos of the applique blocks that I made on Jenna's quilt.  The house block is a very simple one, with embroidered running stitch edges on the house, and on the door.  The hearts are embroidered with white blanket stitch.The bird is embroidered with black blanket stitches, and has a French knot eye and chain stitched legs.  The flower pot is made with a running stitch around the edge.  The flowers have white blanket stitch around their edges and French knots decorate the centers of the flowers.

Very nice Roz. I really like the bird and flowers and the house and even the hearts. LOL In other words, I love it. Will Sabrina's quilt have applique as well? Your granddaughters will treasure these. Winona

I used to do a lot of applique now I avoid it like the plague I don't have the patience, but yours is lovely! She will be so happy with her quilt.

I love the idea of putting names on the quilts. I usually donate my quilts so I can't do that. Maybe I should just put words. Hmmm...
