The pattern for this small summer quilt comes form the book Merry Christmas Quilts. We had the idea of turning a Christmas quilt into a summer one and incorporating machine embroidery with the quilt.
We used the Sunflower Collection, machine embroidery designs in the cross-stitch technique.
First, we pieced together the top, then made the embroidery.
The quilting is free-motion and was done on a regular sewing machine. We used stippling around the embroidery and in-the-ditch quilting all over the feathered star.
We hope that you like the style and inspiration behind this particular quilt.
Here is another quilt, made with the same pattern - the Red Cardinal Wall Hanging. Read more...
