Fabric Alphabet Book

I made and designed this Alphabet book for my grandson. I will give it to him on his 1st birthday in November (2008). I stitched the buttonhole stitch around each motif and letter by hand. The hardest part was sewing all the layers together down the center of the book. It was too thick to even pin together in place. The letters I used were from the Alphabet Quilt Pattern that I designed and have for sale. I reduced the letter size for the front cover title of the book.

Flower Wall Hanging

I started this in my applique group. It was supposed to be a table runner with the flowers equally spaced on the white background and the leaves around the flowers. But I didn't like how it was looking and since I have a round table anyhow, I decided to arrange the flowers differently and to add a stem and place the leaves along the stem. Then I found the perfect fabric (from my stash) for the border. I added some prairie points on 2 sides of the border for an embellishment. Big buttons with smaller buttons on top of them made the perfect flower centers. It's now hanging on the wall.
