My first quilt came about because I wanted to paint these Christmas santas on fabric for a Chrissy wall hanging and had to sew something around the painting to frame it. I quilted it by hand - not very well. Haven't stopped quilting since.
I like to try different things with my quilts and have used the photo printing sheets for my daughter's wedding memories quilt. I also used fabric from her wedding dress (I bonded the satin), beads from her hairpiece and copied their wedding invitation. My husband cross-stitched the floral heart in the centre.
Painted santas with patchwork borders.
