    Two little quilts

    I wanted to share two small quilts that I've made this last year. The first I made for my daughter and has 5 flower motifs that I embroidered. The doilies were purchased because I just wanted to get the quilt done without taking more time to crochet the doilies. I hand quilted everything. The quilting is simple because I wanted the embroidery to stand out.

    The second little quilt I made for my sister. It is all hand quilted. I learned on this quilt that the quality of batting really matters. The batting bearded horribly on the brown. I had to wet down the fabric and batting as I quilted it to keep bearding to a minimum. It turned out ok though.

    They are both beautiful. I love those little triangular pieces of ribbon on the edge of the embroidered block

    How pretty! They're so different, but both beautiful. Love the idea of the doilies and I particularly like the framing you did around the embroidered blocks. The second one has such intricate piecing - you do lovely work.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    The embroidered quilt is very pretty. I love the way you did the embroirdered blocks. This gives me an idea for a memory quilt for my mom who embroidered and my grandmother who tatted.
    I like the colors in the one for your sister, too. I've done that block it is fun to make.

    Your quilts are so wonderful. The satin corners on the white squares of the first quilt are such a wonderful addition. What a clever and creative idea. You do lovely work.

    I believe it was the Warm and Natural cotton batting - or a generic version just like it. I only noticed the bearding on the dark border of the second quilt - not on any of the lighter fabric. I've since switched to a wool batting that I really like.
