I've owned my quilt shop since 1990, specializing in antique reproduction fabrics. Made my first quilt in 1976 which greatly reduced my sewing of clothing! Would like to find more time to SEW.......maybe when I retire? Am married to a farmer, have 3 children and 4 grandchildren who are the light of my life!!!

Another great New Book!
I love Hand Applique and hope to get back to some soon and this book certainly provides inspiration! "Beautiful Botanicals" makes me itch to get going on a "Tree of Life" quilt that I have had in the back of my mind for years..........found just the right "bark" fabric for the tree! The florals can be a combination of applique and also broderie perse. Look for fabrics like those in the photo with the book that will lend themselves to gorgeous flowers whether using the whole flower or just elements of it to make your own creations!
