It's a quilting day for me!
Yesterday, I received this painting from folk artist Jessie Lavon. I love her work!
Jessie comes from a family of quilters...her love and knowledge of quilts really shows in this scene! I am so lucky to now own this! You can visit Jessie today at Purple Cucumbers Folk Art.
I am taking up the needle again and quilting in a hoop. This is a small wall quilt...under 36" square...it is made from my stash of quilting fabrics...including many from designer Kaffe Fassett. The front of the quilt is a "brick" pattern. However, I am quilting it from the reverse side, following the design of the extremely large floral print! This is so much easier than trying to mark a design and more interesting than just outline quilting each "brick"!
