I think I last showed this little quilt in 2008. It now lives at my youngest brother's house. It is 17 1/2 inches x 23 1/2 inches, hand appliqued, quilted and embroidered. And, you'll notice one of my favorite things there......a tree! Love making those! Also....there are French Knots, another favorite.
Do you see the city in the background? And, the little church....I've used that church to make several pieces, long gone to other homes. Maybe I'll do another one someday.
Those knots! And, there are little strips of fabric made into a border. Leftovers from a Log Cabin quilt.
A close-up of the church and tree. I seem to remember using one strand each of three greens to make the leaves.
I found this pin at a flea market years ago. Such tiny stitching! It was love at first sight!
And, once again, that pin! One of my favorite motifs in stitching is a basket like this one filled with flowers. I never tire of finding them!
(I'm not pushing my capabilities at this point.) Hoping you are well and enjoying your summer....❤️
