Cindy K's Houses

 

 

 

 

Cindy's quilt shows such a bright and shining neighborhood. I used a leafy fill in the background, stitched in the ditch across the roof line, and added a door to the larger houses. Sew Fine was used on the top and Glide in the bobbin.

Applique on Red

 

 

 

 

Shirley S. spent a great deal of time working on her applique--and it is so beautiful! Shirley asked for echoing and the occasional stitched motif added--all using red thread to blend. I used Sew Fine on top and Glide in the bobbin.

Martha's "Kiss-Kiss" Quilt

 

 

 

 

It was a lot of fun quilting Martha's "Kiss-Kiss" quilt, and I particularly loved creating the swirls inside the kisses with variegated thread. I used Sew fine and Lava threads on top, with Glide in the bobbin.

Barbara G's Applique

 

 

 

Isn't this quilt gorgeous? I love working with beautiful appliques and the challenge of showing off the piecer's work and enhancing the applique. As usual, I used Sew Fine on top and Glide in the bobbin. Barbara was extremely pleased with the result and this quilt will be shown in the upcoming Fiber Arts Fiesta in Albuquerque.
