    Pretty in Pink Embroidery quilt

    Jean loves to embroidery, but does not sew nor quilt. She has been stitching quilt tops for her grandchildren for several years now (I forget how many she has done). This beautiful top was brought to me with the request to stitch the blocks together, add a border, quilt and bind it. And I must say I enjoyed every single minute of the time I spent on it!! We chose to use Hobbs poly batting as the quilting stitches would not be close enough for the cotton batting. I quilted it with a double line of serpentine quilting stitches, one on each side of the blue printed lines. Jean was very pleased with it and I hope each of you enjoy her embroidery.

    Is that hand embroidery? It's just beautiful. I haven't gotten quite that ambitious yet.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    OMG - there are not enough years left in my life for me to attempt something like that (I'm 46!). This is beyond gorgeous.

    Jean did a great job on the embroidery, I started one a few years ago, but never did finish it, I love your quilting on the quilt, I think it turned our beautiful.
