Embroidery and Quilting
This is my last art quilt I made for my daughter. She found the pattern while on a weekend trip to Gatlinburg. I always hit the quilt shops when I travel, so while we were there she picked out the material. I love working with batics because the colors are so vibrant. I added some metallic thread and beads for embellishment and hand quilted it.
This idea came from my friend Lola. She gave me a photo of one she saw on ebay. I made this for my daughter's wedding shower. The "cake" is made from white towels, rolled and stacked. I embroidered the wedding couple, date, and doves holding ribbon on seperate material and pinned them to the towels. The flowers were added for additional decoration. It made a great centerpiece.
