Machine Appliqued and Embroidered Quilts


I quilted these first three machine appliqued and embroidered quilts for Elaine. The first quilt is called Tulip Time and so pretty in the soft pastel colors.


Elaine and I decided on the panto called Curly Q in a tan colored thread.



Pink wide backing.


The next quilt is a machine embroidered Christmas Quilt with the Figgy Pudding fabrics.


We decided on a simple stipple quilting so that the beautiful embroidered blocks will be the focus and not the machine quilting.



Scrappy backing.


Elaine's cute Pink Elephant quilt also got quilted with a simple stipple.




My Cut Loose Quilt top is all done!


My daughter's Batik Quilt just came out of the dryer. This is one of my favorite quilts.



Happy Quilting!

I'm loving the Christmas embroidered quilt SO much. I love the fun embroidery motifs and I love Figgy Pudding.

I'm catching up on blogs since I haven't been able to with guests staying with us.

Millie - I love when you share your quilting. You are an inspiration to me.
