Our April guest was Elizabeth Frolet, whose story of learning to quilt and embroider and then combine the two is both astonishing and entertaining. It's hard to believe that someone who is self-taught and claims not to really like crazy quilts has created such amazing, award-winning works of art. And did I mention she pretty much only does hand piecing and quilting?
This quilt was the beginning of the embroidery and "not a crazy quilt" journey. Elizabeth wanted to use thread she inherited from her mother.
This is Elizabeth's Garden - A Tale of a Thousand Threads, the quilt that has won ribbons at Paducah and other shows.
My absolute favorite block from that quilt. Elizabeth didn't repeat an embroidery motif anywhere on the quilt!
I love that Elizabeth included so many things she loves in unique ways, including these silhouettes of her family members.
Just a little ole Baltimore Album quilt. NBD.
Totally worth it!
