More Commissioned Quilts

Previously I have shared a couple of quilts that I made for this lovely couple, who have chosen to honour their loved ones with special quilts, with blocks contributed by family and friends.

Well, this same client has kept me busy earlier this year.  I stitched together 3 more quilts for them.  One was for another daughter who was expecting a baby, one was for a friend who also was having a baby, and one was for a mother who turned 80.

These are photos of the mother's birthday quilt.  The backing included a hand-painted fabric panel by Eileen Gidman of Creston, BC.  It went perfectly with the blossoms on the fabric.

Mom was a beautiful young woman!

Beautiful embroidery

Another beautiful embroidery

And this is the friend's baby quilt:

this embroidery was entirely made up of french knots!
Again, it was so much fun to watch these quilt blocks come together and be a part of their expression of love.

They are all gorgeous, but I especially love that hand painted apple tree.
