Today I offer a sneak-peek of a Christmas present I am making for my niece and her husband.
I was inspired by the Woodgrain motif in Molly Hanson’s new book:
Free Motion Quilting for Beginners and those who think they can’t (There’s still time to enter yesterday’s Giveaway!)
Woodgrain can be used to add texture to any quilt and is very “au courant”.
With Winter upon us, I was inspired by the leaf-less trees in our yard.
(As you can imagine-it’s a very busy house!)
Or maybe a simple binding and give her a wooden bowl for apples on her table…
What do YOU think?
NOTE-This quilt was stitched on Robert Kaufman Kona cotton with Sulky 40 wt Rayon on top and 50wt Aurifil in the bobbin. 50 wt Aurifil was also used on top to stitch the background leaves, etc. This was stitched on a domestic sewing machine, a Bernina 150 without a stitch regulator.
