    Counted Cross Stitch Quilt

    Some of you will remember the quilt I LAed for a dear friend and customer several months ago. The blocks were all counted cross stitch birds and flowers. A beautiful quilt. She entered it in the county fair and won a second place. I'm so proud. My first show win. Well for my quilting at least. I'm so excited. Thanks for looking again.

    That's some amazing counted crossstitch! And your choice of quilting complimented it so well. I can see why it won.

    I love your quilt, the cross stitch squares look so delicate and the vine quilting go sooo- together...

    That's lovely! I also do counted cross stitch and can't wait to get started on "Over the River and Through the Woods". I have the pattern and also the "Redwork Winter Twittering" pattern....just don't have the time to start them now...guess that will be for next year. I have too many commissions left to finish for Christmas before I can do anything for me. Where did you find your patterns of the bird and florals you did for this quilt? They are really nice. Keep up the great work and CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

    Hugs
