Mary's Quilt

Mary is a new quilting friend I met this past year and I'm so thankful to have met her.  She's a great lady. She just started quilting in January of 2013 and has already made 18 quilts.  I would say she is hooked!  She always adds some beautiful hand embroidery to her projects and I love quilting away and finding some hidden treasures that she has stitched.  I always tease her that she always "Mary's it up".  This quilt started with a gift of charms squares that I gave her for a gift.  This is what she made up.  She asked me to custom quilt it for her.  I took some ideas from Judi's new book "Quilting in Wide Open Spaces"  Her new book is so awesome.  If you like to look at quilting eye candy....then this book is for you.  Fabulous job Judi!  Here are some pictures of Mary's beautiful Quilt.







 These cute little daisies were done digitally and the digital pattern is available from Natalia over at Piece N Quilt.  So cute!
 Check out all this hand embroidery!






Thanks so much for letting me quilt this for you Mary!  She's such a talented lady!

Happy Quilting!

Teresa

  6. Wow! Both the quilt and the quilting. Santa didn't bring me Judy's book for Christmas but he did bring me a gift certificate so that I can buy it myself.
