C sent me a box of quilts for LAQ. She always send such nice projects....I love this memory quilt! It is so sweet ..she even included her pets Balto and Blackie in the embroidered family member blocks....adorable!

I just took each row and tried to match design to break up texture and make it make sense...so roofs got shingles....butterlies got loopies...leaves...flowers...it's all in there! I love these kind because they are so much fun!

The small Easter wall hanging..I added stipple and leaves..it stands on it's own..it's so cute!

The ribbon embroidered wall hanging..is just gorgeous! All that work! I added Charisma Curls, leaves and finished it off with a feather for an elegant finish.

I quilted everything freehand on my INNOVA. I used Hobbs Poly down batting. Thanks for looking!

Great job C! I love what you did with all 3. The memory quilt would have caused me hours and hours of S&S (Stand & Stare) trying to figure out what to do!
