  1. Heirloom quilting......I had a real challenge with this quilt.  All of the blocks were hand embroidered and were quite thick in spots.  There were lots of French knots and the client wanted the words of a particular hymn in the sashings.  The sashings were linen and raveled very easily, so I serged the edges (no cutting) and that kept it stable enough to quilt without further fraying.  Since I do freehand work without a computer, this was a bit scary, but I finished it and the client was thrilled and tearful with the outcome. My client is the daughter of the embroiderer. 

    This will be a wedding gift for the client's granddaughter, and was embroidered by the recipient's great-grandmother who passed away some time ago. IMG_8039(Edited).jpg.93d78b753d821be833435b68dc6fa1f3.jpgIMG_8048(Edited).jpg.747c2ae84e4b77ca39366167523c10ec.jpg
