    This is the latest quilt I've quilted for my cousin - a fabulous piecer. She used lots of wool applique and I love the colors and designs she used. To quilt this, I used wool batting and different background fills behind all of the applique blocks. That was fun to do. I took more pics, but most turned out blurry. Thanks for looking.

    Truly beautiful...that is one of the nicest tree of life designs I've seen. The wool really does give it a different look and dimension, doesn't it? Your quilting is just great, you have really done justice to the quilt. Thanks so much for sharing your family's talents.

    Your quilting is beautiful; and, although it stands on its own, it does not overpower or upstage the beauty of the quilt top. wow... This is what quilting is all about.
