    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!

    Thanks everyone. The Memories quilt was made row by row by different members of our sewing group. We had to start the quilt with a row and each person there after added and built on to it. We actually made a journal telling the story of our quilt and it was also written in and embellished by each lady as they added their row. I started with the stick figures of each member of our family, including the cat and dog. I was so very pleased with how everyone added to my quilt, and now Charisma is also a part of that quilt. I am delighted and blessed to have so many friends. Thank you.
