First up, "A Gentle Heart" made by Terry Waldron of Anaheim, CA. This was part of a "Text in Textiles" exhibit. It was hand appliqued, hand beaded, and machine quilted.
Text on quilts is all the rage right now, but what I loved most about this quilt was the silhouette at the top. It is simple, modern and BEAUTIFUL! I also love the echo quilting around it, keeps the design simple.
Next up, an idea that might make my mom start quilting! "Ethel's Diary" by Eileen Campbell of Kew, Victoria, Australia. It is machine appliqued, digitally printed, free-motion stitched and quilted, and couched.
She took excerpts of her great-aunt Ethel's diary, added family photos and came up with this gorgeous memory quilt. Truly inspirational!
I've been meaning to try out those special fabric sheets that allow you to print out photos onto fabric. I just haven't gotten to it yet. This could take your scrapbooking to a whole new level!
Until next Sunday!
