MY Garden quilt

      I call this red work but it is actually more of a burgundy color (dmc 815). It was started in january of 2001 and finished in april of 2002.
      I have always liked embroidery, and have done it for more than 30 years, but this is the first quilt in which I have used it as the primary design. In the dark burgundy areas I have quilted a hummingbird feeding on a rose and a butterfly alternately. On two of the borders I designed my own floral vine quilting pattern and used a lot of stippling within the blocks.
      I am very pleased with the way this quilt turned out, and think it may well be my favorite so far.
       This quilt won first place in the  Saxonburg Art festivals’ quilt show in September of 2002.
