More From Karen Stone

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
We are doing our family celebration today--looking forward to that turkey! 
Temecula Quilt Company posted the last three Little Letters--so cute! I still need to sew up the sashing--already finished the cutting, so it shouldn't take too long.

In my last post I showed some details from Karen K. Stone's finished quilts that she shared with us in class. Today I have some detail photos of some "works in progress". 
This is all linen and uses her English paper piecing by machine technique.

Silk hexagons-- and again, English paper piecing by machine.

I love the combination of textures in this one--and more English paper piecing by machine.

Machine applique using all silk--gorgeous!

This is my very favorite--I can only imagine how wonderful it will look after Karen quilts it!

I'm not sure if it's the colors or all those circles that makes me love it!
More next time!
I'm determined to just collect the patterns for Bonnie Hunter's Grand Illusion Mystery Sew Along--I still have 2 unfinished mysteries: my Christmas Solstice and Easy Street, so I don't need a third one! I'll just watch from the side lines as photos are posted, and drool.

  1. Oh thanks for sharing those beautiful quilts--we had a wonderful T-Day yesterday--lots of good food, fun and laughter with family--we are so grateful! We are now dog-sitting for my granddog 'Kota--she slept over last night--what a wonderful gal! A very funny doggie. DH is now playing keep away with her. Her picture is on my sidebar...and we get to see our granddaughters later on today AGAIN!! We are psyched...hugs, Enjoy Julierose
