Block 5 of Garden Noveau Quilts

Anna Aldmon continues to send me digitized blocks to stitchout. This is the fourth block that I have completed. Each block is a shining star and will stand out in a quilt of stars. You will have to get Vicky Lawrence's book, Garden Noveau Quilts, to see the beauty of this quilt.

Second Garden Nouveau Block

This is block 4 in the Garden Nouveau quilt. It is fascinating to watch the designs stitch out. Anna Aldmon has done a terrific job of digitizing the designs. She has the most comprehensive directions that I have used for quilt blocks. Check out my last post for all of the particulars about the quilt and where you can find more information.

New Project

This is a block from my newest project. I am testing the Bernina format (ART) for the digitizer of Vicky Lawrence's Garden Nouveau quilt. Anna Aldmon is the digitizer and has the disks ready for Viking and Pfaff embroidery machines. The hoop can be 200 X 260 or 200 X 360. She said she should have her website available next week but you can
You must purchase Vicky's book to complete the quilt. The embroidery format is in addition to the directions for the quilt. The original quilt is hand applique. I am so excited to try the quilt in machine applique because everyone who knows me knows that "I do not want to touch the needle."
Vicky's quilt is hanging at the Overbrook Quilt Connection. Roxane has the Garden Nouveau books available and also has Anna's embroidery patterns.

15-Minute Table Runner

These are 15-minute table runners that I have made while waiting for an embroidery design to stitch. While Roxane was gone to Houston, she asked me to make one of these for a shop sample. Wow! they are just so easy that I decided they would make great gifts. I showed the Thursday sewing group at the shop and they started making them too. They really can be made in 15 minutes or less.

Design Wall Monday

There are three "quilts-in-progress" on my design wall. The Christmas one is made from the OESD Christmas Collection 3. I have to embroider four designs around the corners by the wreath and then embroider the border. That is what I am doing today. The other is Wild!flowers by Smith Street Designs. I still have to finish the sashing around the blocks. It was supposed to be finished last week. The third one that you cannot see is Montana Log Cabin and I just need a few hours to work on it. Lots to do and time is getting short. Check other posts on Judy's Blog.
