This quilt will be turned in to the NMQA (New Mexico Quilters' Association) at their March meeting for binding and to go into their "quilt bank". It's always a treat to work on such a pretty and creative quilt top--it has an almost watercolor look. I used Sew Fine thread throughout.

Bright, current fabrics paired with an old-fashioned block were given a fun design with loops and CCs in the body of the quilt and feathers in the border. I used monopoly thread on top and Sew Fine in the bobbin to ensure there was lots of texture without drawing attention to the thread. Cindy was thrilled with the result!

Cheryl G. made this special quilt in honor of the 50th wedding annivrsary of her parents' long time friends. Using cross-hatching, feather wreaths, a feathered border and a background fill to make the embroidery pop and give this an heirloom treatment. I used Sew Fine throughout.

Martha's Saturday Sampler from the LQS used a totally different pallete and laughed when the pattern went unrecognized at first. I was given free reign on this quilt and really went for it, using monopoly and Sew Fine throughout. Martha's comment when she got her quilt back? "Kathryn, you knocked this one out of the park!" Yep, she liked it...a lot! :-)
