Show and tell…

Kim Jasko sent this photo of a quilt she recently finished (for an anniversary milestone) using what she calls ‘Becky’s Birds’, designs from our book, ‘My Whimsical Quilt Garden‘. Truth be told, the birds are more Linda’s birds than mine :-).

Kim plans on displaying her quilt every May.

The base design is from Amanda Murphy. I think this is an excellent mash-up of two different quilt patterns. Well done, Kim, and thank you for sharing!

Jeneen Conway sent me the photo of her quilt with this message:

It’s been a few years since I took your applique “big stitch” class in Bloomington, IN.  I didn’t tell you that I had been working on this pinwheel quilt for some time. Took your wall hanging, redesigned it, re-drew the borders, and chose to make a 360 degree rainbow around the 16 pinwheels. It has been a labor of love and now it is a king size quilt on my bed!  Thank you for the tips you share. I truly learned to needle turn applique through the books that you and Linda created. I thought you would like to see a finished picture.

Thank you, Jeneen, for sending me the story of your quilt! It’s lovely and I am so happy that you are enjoying it on your bed!
