Art Quilt Finish, Laura Wasilowski's Free-stitched Embroideries Article...

'Quilting Arts' Magazine June/July 2016 has an article on free form stitching.

Free-stitched Embroideries by Laura Wasilowski, pg. 21 excellent!

My version of 'Jam Art' ,design by Maple Island Quilts.

What's Up Thursday!!!!

This week flew by!! A new grandson has been born, the first in our family! We're walking on clouds and very thankful.
I finished hand stitching the binding down to the back of my version of 'Jam Art'. I'll be calling it 'Tropical Jam'. I gave it a wash and a spin in the drier too. It will look good on a wall so I will add a hanging sleeve. The binding is thin in width on the front, as I don't like the bulky double fold binding  look, and don't use it on my quilts.

Quilting Arts Magazine, June/July 2016 has a great article on free-stitched embroideries by Laura Wasilowski. Her work is beautiful and clever. Stitching enthusiasts, this is a must see and read! 

It takes courage to walk in beauty, to be a voice for good.
Be courageous.

  1. Congratulations!! I'm so excited about your wee grandson - hope he lives close enough that you can get lots of baby cuddle time. Our little man just turned two yesterday and there's another little boy baby coming around the first of September. What joy! (ps. 'Jam Art' looks great!!).

  3. Congratulations on your new grandson! Your finished quilt is just lovely:seeing it in its entirety really highlights how nicely the colours work together. I like the balance between the plains and the big floral prints a lot too,and your fab hand quilting bringing it all together.

  6. oh how wonderful...a new baby!! It just makes the whole world seem so much brighter doesn't it. We have a new baby in the family too, a little girl. I saw her last week. There's nothing quite like nursing a newborn is there. (not a grand child for me but amazing all the same)
