all done

I'm done with my Good Ol' Summertime quilt and I'm pleased with the result. I can only hope my partner does too!

Good Ol' Summertime Mini Quilt

I made this quilt by cutting flowers out of a larger piece of fabric and
attached them on the background using vliesofix and a hot iron. Then I draw stems and leaves with a pencil and covered the pencil lines with embrodery stitches. The borders are sewn on with the machine and I quilted by hand. It's a very bright and colored quilt, I tried to capture summer, and I believe I did.

You certainly did capture summer and all that is sunny. Wish I were the lucky recipient. Thank you for sharing your work. I check back every so often to see your progress on things. Always a treat too.

Positively beautiful! I don't know who the recipient is. But they're one lucky person. I use to love to do embroidery. Have arthritis from hand surgery now, but just loved crazy quilting and embroidering.
Lovely work here! And wrapped so prettily too.
