Flowers in Red

I purchased this kit in Paducah 7 years ago to hang in my black and white kitchen. Now I no longer live in that house and have finished the top. It was a good practice piece on my long arm.

Blackbird Design block

Finished another hand applique Blackbird Design 24 inch block. Only 2 to go and I get to sew them altogether.

Am loving working with these fabrics.

Daughter's of the American Revolution BOM

Another recent finish on Avante is this BOM from Windham Fabrics using reproduction fabrics. It was called Daughter's of the American Revolution. I put this quilt together for the quilt shop sample and just recently finished quilting and binding.
This quilt went together very easily. The first quilt ever I didn't have to take out and redo anything. Amazing.

Close up of over all design.

I mostly did over all design on quilting except for center star.

Here you can see some of the over all design.

Flowers and Leaves on Avante

Some pics of practicing some flowers and leaves on Avante Handi-quilter on a crib size quilt top. Love the backing fabric.
