QUILT INFO

I used an Electric Quilt applique design and modified it slightly to make this basket block.

Winter Work

A new finish from a pattern by Cheri Payne.  It is called "Winter Work".  Wool on cotton applique which made it easy stitching.
I used one of the Blackbird Designs sampler  fabrics for the border.  It has the alphabet on it and seems to suit the embroidered alphabet that is part of Cheri's design.  

I received a table mat for my birthday from a friend.  She chose well.
Call me happy!
