Good Monday Morning from 24 Blocks. This morning we’re featuring three quilts, recently shared with us by our readers, that are all very different. They range from a Cathedral Windows panel creatively framed, to very intricate monsters in a crazy quilt. In between is a lovely work of harmony that seems to give flight to love with its hearts and other motifs pointing to the center. We hope you enjoy them and find inspiration for your own creativity.
Our thanks go to Deloris, Carol and Misty for sharing them with us all.
from: Deloris Linson-Rose: “Lamia’s MY MONSTERS! crazy quilt created for my niece. It took three years to make. There are 65 patches, each hand embroidered with monsters. Friends and family provided their own creations or stories of their favorite monsters. Mine is Medusa, the symbol of protection and the origin for the legend of Lamia. I would guess there are well over 100 different embroidery stitches used….I didn’t repeat any …..and I’m not going to count! I used the traditional way to create the crazy quilt; everything is held together by embroidery stitches, because I don’t know how to sew!”
