Renee's Grandmother's Flower Crazy Patch

This is Renee's first large quilt. She put alot of time into it. Each seam of the crazy patch is machine embroidered, and she's thinking about embellishing the butterflies with beads or crystals. She's done a wonderful job sewing the quilt together. I did quilt over the crazy patch with a medallion pattern in monofilament thread. It did not diminish the patchwork at all. I finished it off with a feather plume in the 1/2 square triangles on the sides of the quilt.
The flower patches, and the butterflies were outlined with a gold thread, then I did freehand quilting in the backgroud with black just to show shadows. She loved it!

Mary's Courthouse Steps

I've got to make this quilt!! Mary just started cutting her scraps into 2" strips, and put it together in Courthouse Steps fashion. I used a plume feather pattern in the border, and a pattern from Anne Bright called August Rain. It measures 100 X 100, and she used a silk batt. I wish I had some where to hang it to get a full picture. Beautiful! (Scrappy quilts are my favorite)

More Project Improv Blocks

Originally this was going to be a one block shot, but creating blocks of an improvisational nature can be extremely addicting. I have so many ideas in my head for the quilt, the hard part is which to choose.
