The last of the quilts
Dyane is the proud owner of a wonderful embroidery machine, and she used it to help create the quilt that she made for Linda. Linda is a wonderfully creative seamstress that seams to be able to make just about anything! Dyane used her embroidery machine to embroider a variety of shoes, handbags and hats onto the middle of each block. It was very beautiful!
Here is a closeup of one of the blocks.
Jean's quilt was made by Marilee - and there was a story behind it. When she went to buy some fabrics to match Jean's fabrics, the quilt shop owner (who is a friend of Jean's) convinced her to get a whole different set of fabric so that it would match Jean's newly decorated house - that was a first for Fibre Friends - many of us have been unable to use every fabric that we were given but this was the first quilt to have NONE of the original fabrics! But it is stunning anyway!!
