    Lots of talent and hard work went into those pieces. You created a wonderful work of art.

    I'm really new at quilting and I'm curious about the flower quilt. It appears some sort of covering was centered over the flowers and may I ask how you did that?

    I first painted a piece of muslin (doesn't matter what you use) the flowers and back ground. When you are happy with it, you slice it to the size you like before adding a boarder. Note: you want to slice into the flowers. After adding a boarder, find fabric from your stash that works well with the incompleted petals. I think I added some misty fuse under the additonal fabric petals. Free form cut the flower petals that hang over the edge and iron or sew down. It gives it a added texture.

    I found it: Donna's web link. I am not sure if the contact numbers are up to dates, but there is always the email. Also just fun to look at all her beautiful pieces.

    Not that I am aware of. I did these quilts a few years back and at that time she had been in either the APQS or some other big sponors calenders (they were judged to get a months spot). From what I understand she has made a big name for herself in the Lancaster Pa. area. At one time she did have a web page. If I can locate the card, I will post it here. I would think you could also Google her name.
    Hope this helps!
    Helen ~ Your landscapes are beautiful! I visited your blog and the one that you did with thread painting is marvelous. Anyways, in answer to the Q Bd member who inquired about a class, I just wanted to suggest a helpful book that might be enough instruction to do something similar without a class, per se. The name of the book is "Accidental Landscapes" and the author is Karen Eckmeier. I hope this helps.

    Nita, You are right. We just had Karen at our group in the fall for a workshop. Needless to say I have not completed that project (I am sure allot of you can relate!!!). But will post it in the future. She is also a fabulous teacher.

    I'm not ready for hot weather yet, either, cjmomma, and I'm with you on the winter quilt...lovely! (I wouldn't mind an end to the wind and rain we've had here all day, though. I will say in its defense that quite a bit more of our snow has gone!)

    Do you REALLY have those beautiful rolling hills in New Jersey???
    I am constantly amazed that there is any open spaces left on the East Coast. I remember the first time I met someone from New York state. He kept trying to tell me that there were dairy herds in his state.
    I had gotten so used to seeing New York City in the advertisements, I couldn't conceive of any farmland, even though I did know that the state was quite large.
    One of my cousins was from Massachusetts, telling me that there were forests with big trees in them - - it was hard for me to believe.
    In a way, my impression of East of the Mississippi must be like my Eastern cousins who seem disappointed that we aren't still fighting the savage Indians! LOL
    If you get to look on those rolling hills during the winter, I do believe you are truly blessed

    What beautiful wallhangings! I am not a fan of winter (the actual season-cold), but I love yours!
