Nothing but quality. Don't normally like brown but the qualtiy of your workmanship has drawn me to your quilt work. I recognise you as a teacher and have seen some of your work at the TQS if I'm not mistaken Ann. Beautiful. Is this your own design would love the pattern if you sell it or know where I could find it. Julieannabell. Thanks Ann for showing your quilt.

This is absolutely gorgeous! The quilting effect is lovely. The stems and leaves seem to be a different kind of fabric. Are they applique?

It is quilted with a gold thread and then painted with a sheer coat of metallic paint. Thanks!

I love your interpretation of the Bella Bella quilt in this piece! I've had that pattern on my shelf for awhile and hadn't figured out what to do with it yet, but you've given me some new ideas. This quilt is just beautiful and the fabric paint technique you used seems perfect for it.

It has been an age since I made a double wedding ring -tho I'm thinking about a new variation. There are several YouTube videos on it - Shar Jorgenson is a good one. There is also a tutorial on the Craftsy blog, I think!
