    i took some pix showing the whole quilt and then a close shot to show detail, so i hope you don't get bored.

    this is only a very small sample of what there was. i only had the camera a short time and then it was 'stolen' from me by hubby.

    you'll also see some very familiar ones with another interpretation.

    everything appliqued is needleturned.

    i already lost some. yeesh!

    there are a lot. i will tell you when it's done. so without further ado ......


    i already lost some. yeesh!!! i'll try to get them back at the end.

    Breathtaking. The skill and patience it took to do these are unimaginable. They are beautiful. They are pure art.

    on the GFG, notice that some of the flowers have black centers, some solids.

    this was part of a series of folded fabric quilts - very artistic and wonderful. the ones done in plain muslin were especially nice.

    the one that looks like crochet, but isn't, is layers of fussycut fabric cut in sequential circles on top of each other, and then handstitched in large basting stitches around the circles.

    very, very creative.

    These folded ones have intrigued me for years. They look like
    Jennie Rayment's work. She's the queen of folding.
