Quilt Show

New from Italy

Hello, I'm Niky from Italy. 
I would like to tell you that I've showed your Fine Collection book to some friends and they liked it very very much, I've already stitched something from that and your design looks really wonderfull stitched!!! I put one of your Loose Feather Club patterns on a box and another one on a frame, another one on a pillow, on a box and another one on a frame, another one on a pillow, they are nice, I like your style so soft an very different. 

Nicoletta Farrauto

Niky's "Emblem of Friendship" and "Glad Tidings" are patterns in our new booklet Tokens of Friendship. We love the bag Niky made from the "Glad Tidings" 
sampler! The addition of the three buttons on the bottom of the bag is just the right touch! The heart pillow is made from "Truly Thine", a Loose Feather Club pattern. Niky, thank you for sharing your lovely work!


We adapted your "Stars and Stripes" sampler for use as a band on a picnic basket that will be raffled off as one of the fund raiser baskets for Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens. The Stan Hywet Needlework Guild appreciates your allowing us to use your design as the 
base for our picnic basket band. One picture is of the basket assembled with all of its contents - your design on the band and on the jelly jar lids (for salt & pepper & condiments) - the picnic throw is quilted and the Uncle Sam is cross stitched. Also included are wine from Stan Hywet, wine glasses, plates, silverware, etc, and a gift certificate from Stan Hywet's cafe. (The piece of the band laying on the picnic throw goes on the back of the basket.)

The second picture is a close up of the band pieces and the jelly jars. Your design was a perfect complement for our patriotic basket, and was fun to stitch. "Mayfair" is the name of our show.

We thank you so much for allowing us to adapt your design. I hope you like the way it turned out!

Bright Bouquet quilt from Lovina's Pressed Flowers 
by Patti Black
I finally got the photo of my Bright Bouquet quilt.  My daughter loves it and it does look really pretty.  Too bad you can't see the quilting on each block with overdyed perle cotton.  It really adds a nice touch. The background wool is flow blue over gray wool and the swirls are three shades of a blue spot dye over a white cashmere.

from Agnes DeaneGainesville

I did not get bored doing this design as I sometimes do with reproduction samplers. The fabric was particularly difficult to work with maybe because it had no "sheen" whatsoever, but I am pleased with the final product and feel it was worth the effort using two Ott lamps to find the holes to punch! I have a wonderful framer that remembered this particular frame and immediately found the right book, ordered and framed it for me quickly. Everything fell into place.


Sujata Shah finished her quilt top!  This quilt is from Summer Weekend.

This quilt is shown on the wall in her dining room.  Her quilting really shows well in this photograph!

Charlene Hauri from El Cajon, CA writes, "I just have to share with you my creation using the "Midnight in the Garden" pattern from the book FRESH FROM THE GARDEN. The slightly whimsical flowers were a welcome change from traditional flowers. Applique is my forte and this quilt was fun to make and turned out stunning! It will be an entry in the San Diego Quilt Show in August 2002."

     "I have completed two models of your cross-stitch designs in my shop. I thought you might like to see the fabric I used for the models.
     The purple-pink background is "Rhapsody" linen from The Blended Needle and the green-teal background is "Dragon Myst" from the same company. These models on overdyed linen have garnered a great deal of attention in my shop, Forever Stitching in Idaho Falls, ID. If you are interested in the fabric with the mottled look, you may want to check out The Blended Needle."
