Special Quilt for my granddaughter

I got the quilt back from Korea and I’m going to give to my 4 years old granddaughter as a Christmas gift. It’s beautiful….. I hope she likes it. Special thanks to Jade.

Six Birds

I stitched these six birds and made them into cushions a very long time ago. I wanted to stitch them again, so I did so in June. I’m sending them to my quilt friend in Korea, to have them made into a bed runner or a wall hanger.  I haven’t decide which, yet.

Initials PH

I stitched the initials “PH” for my son, who has framed all my projects which were sitting in a closet for 10 to 15 years…. He has done about 46 frames so far and there are a few more left to be done. Original pattern is Monogrammes Entrelaces “P et E”, designed by A Mon Ami Pierre, I changed the “E” to “H”. My dearest friend Yoon-Hye from Korea helped me change it. I love how it turned out.

Peaceful Retreat

This lovely "Peaceful Retreat" project is designed by Barbara L Peterson of Something in Common. I stitched two of them in May of this year.

My son framed them for me. I'm going to use these as a gift.

I completed the last 4 pieces of Holly Hobbie. Since last December, I stitched 16 Holly Hobbies with all different colour conversion. Now I’m going to send them to Korea to have them made into a quilt as wall hanging or bed spread. And all I have to do in the meantime is wait.

Special Project 1

I’m working on a special project for my granddaughter, who is 3 and a half years old. Last year in December, I started to stitch “Holly Hobbie” with all different colours. I planned 12 pieces when I started, but now I’m going to make 16 pieces. It’s fun to stitch with my own colour conversion work. Here are first four pieces done. I contacted my friend in Korea, who will make a quilt of these for me. Special thanks to Jade.

Apple, Pear and Pomogranate

These are very old designs from freebie. They’ve been sitting in a box for a very long time. I didn’t plan to do anything with these small finished projects, but it turned out so great after framing.  I’m so pleased. I still have lots of small projects which have to be framed. Size: 12" X 24.5"

Prayer is the Key & One Door

I stitched these two projects in 2006 for my friend.  That time she would have framed it herself, but I found that she has kept them unframed for 12 years….I asked her to lend them to me, for my son to frame.  Finally they are framed, and I will return them to her next week.

This is my 2nd time stitching “Clarinet”. Dec/2000, I started two Clarinets at the same time and I finished one for use as a gift. I ran out of the silver colour metallic thread, so I left the 2nd Clarinet in a closet for a long time and forgot all about it….. I found this unfinished project early this year, when my son started framing projects for me. I wasn’t aware that I had a “UFO” as I always start new projects only after I finish the previous one. I’m glad that I was able to finish the 2nd Clarinet, as I don’t have a good picture of the 1st one. Frame size is 13.25" x 19.75".
