In Full Bloom

I worked on Sue Spargo's "in Full Bloom" Block of the Month quilt during 2014.  I loved working with the wool and learning and stitching all those lovely embroidery stitches.

We were not allowed to show our work until this May - we had to wait until Sue put the quilt package up for sale on her website.

Below is the drawing that we were given at the beginning of January 2014 - I have not finished the top quilting yet, but I have inserted the final top before quilting.  I have also put each of the months blocks as I finished them.  I think I may have to find a long arm quilter to quilt the top - I hate to do it, but I do not want to ruin my hundreds of hours of work!

I really enjoyed this BOM and I am now working on the 2015 BOM.

More Birthday cards


Made quilted birthday cards for the girls this year.  Did lots of thread painted on two of them.  They appreciated them and they were fun to do - great to start & finish a quilt in a few hours!
