    Cross Stitch Style Quilt...quilted by Kevin

    This is a work-in-progress today. Customer made a gorgeous king-sized quilt using Eleanor Burns' Cross Stitch Quilts book (pattern used was Teresa's Basket). He's doing tons of feathers, stitch in the ditch, and other free-motion designs throughout the quilt. I can't wait to see the whole thing off the machine...this may be his best one yet! Customer is planning to enter this in the Iowa State Fair this summer. Thanks for looking

    If a woman's work is never done....why start?

    Kevin's work is lovely!
    But I wish we could also always see the full quilt as well as just the stitching when LAs show us the quilts they've done. That would honor both the piecer *and* the quilter.

    I definitely will show the whole quilt...when it's finished The piecer did a beautiful job with it. It's still on the the machine today...maybe 1-2 days left before the full reveal.

    Thanks for looking!

    What a masterpiece - for the the person who did the piecing and the one who did the quilting!
