Quilting is no longer just your grandma's traditional bed quilts.
Quilts can convey a sentiment:
In this piece the quilter combines both hand embroidery and machine embroidery to create a lovely 12 X 14.25 wall hanging.
They can represent a religion, a culture, an expression of faith:
Sieber Designs uses machine appliqued Hebrew lettering and accents her flowers with a sparkle of beading. She has machine pieced and machine quilted her designs.
Artfully Sew uses hand dyed fabrics and wax pastels in her original designs. She accents her work with hand embroidery and machine pieces and machine quilts her creations.
They can be entertaining and fun for both boys and girls:
In this piece SuzyQQuilts has used machine applique to attach leaves and tree trunk to the quilt background. The leaves contain names and birthdates of family members making this a family heirloom piece. This is a custom order item from her shop that can be ordered with your choice of border color.
and they can bring comfort after the loss of a loved one.
This piece is one of my own designs that was created for a customer after the death of her father. My customer supplied me with 3 large shopping bags of flannel shirts that had belonged to her father and this is one of the two designs I put together for her. It is machine pieced, machine appliqued and machine quilted. I offer this as a custom order in my Etsy shop and the quilt can take on a totally different look depending on the type and color of garments used.
