I have a great quilt top here made by my DSIL, Beverly. She pieced, appliqued and embroidered the top for her sister and my other DSIL, Bernadette. She sent it to me to quilt on Emma, my longarm quilting machine. This appliqued kitty is the center focal point of the quilt.
These are some of the machine embroidered cats of all kinds that Beverly has placed in smaller blocks that surround the center cat. It should come as no surprise that Bernadette loves cats!
Beverly's work is exquisite. I don't do machine embroidery, so I am really in awe of the detail that is captured in these designs.
Beverly also sent me prepared binding, a beautiful label for me to sew on the back, and several really cool matching pillowcases. The pillowcases are such a great idea.....I know I want to make some for some of my future quilts!
I'll be showing some pics of the pillowcases and the label soon!
