Little Red Riding Hood - Made for my granddaughter in 2006. I made this while with my husband on a 2 month long stay in Golden, Colorado. We were in a hotel room and I had a little sewing machine to use. The story is embroidered around the perimeter of the quilt in the center panel and the yellow border. If you enlarge the picture you may be able to see the wolf hiding behind her. (Hint: it's head is on right between her head and the basket and it's rear is on her left.) It is very subtle (on purpose). The large "prairie points" can be unbuttoned as a game. Behind each is something she might have seen in the forest. Where is the wolf?
|Scrap quilt, 2007. Absolutely everything in this quilt was from scraps- including the batting. Fleece on the back was left over from a blanket project. This is about 50" x 45". Made for my grandson.|

Stay tuned and I'll show you how I'm making a bedspread out of a canvas drop cloth! (unless my idea totally fails!)
See you later!
