Classic Bluework Embroidery Quilt

This lovely bluework quilt top was made by Carolyn. She told me to do what I wanted and I was in a feather mood. So I stitched around most of the embroidery, leaving some of it not stitched to give it dimension. Then I stitch a frame and filled it with my version of McTavishing. I added some leaves and flowers here and there. The area outside of the frame was feathered. The border has swags with feathers and 1/8″ straight lines.

All quilting done with Sew Fine in an off white. That helped me to see where I had stitched.




A few of the blocks.

Thanks Carolyn for giving me the opportunity to be in feather heaven.

  1. I looked at this for over 5 minutes! OMG that is stunning! The frames are just brilliant and the swags add that final touch. Love everything about this one. I hope she enters it in a show, it’s beautiful!

  2. Your long arm quilting is amazing. As are your patterns and your customers’ patterns. I am amazed. I am pouring over your posts to see if you offer info on obtaining patterns. In particular…do you know where I could find the patterns for the hand embroidered flowers!

    • I asked my customer about her source. Here’s her reply.

      I used a book called Wildflower Album by Bea Oglesby. I think there were forty some patterns. They were supposed to be embroidered in colors but as you know I only used one color and did outlines. I don’t remember if it was a quilting book.
