This small wall hanging quilt was a class I took at the Houston International Quilt Festival some years ago. I don’t remember the teacher/designer’s name, but she was from Great Britain and I bought one of her books while in Houston. The book didn’t make the cut on what I could bring to Japan, so I can’t tell you who she was. I finished the machine piecing and sandwiched it together. Now it needs to be hand quilted and to sew on the binding and the sleeve to hang it. It doesn’t sound like that much, does it?
This beaded velvet shawl was a class I took at the Chicago National EGA seminar. The teacher/designer is Deanna Powell. I’ve wanted to work on this but have been reluctant to get it all out and set up. There are many different beads and sequins and I need a big table space to work on it. You can see the lining behind the velvet. It really is a beautiful piece and I would love to finish and wear it.
This is a small wall hanging quilt to be made with silk ribbon to look like a Baltimore album quilt and I have never even started it. I bought the book and all the threads and silk ribbons at a large quilt show in Indianapolis when I lived there. The receipt is still in the package and I cringe thinking about how much I spent! You can see the fabric for it behind all the ribbons and threads. I’m sure it will be beautiful when I finish it.
