Sister Act.

With everything that has been flowing through our studio lately, it was a real treat to stop and really appreciate some of the work. To help us with our deadlines, we enlisted the skills of some of our former co-workers.

Their is a talented sister pair, who Cori and I use to work with at our local quilt shop. One of the sisters, Lydia, very quickly pieced together a quilt top for us, that has already been sent off to the quilter. You will be seeing in a magazine next spring. And the other sister, Meg, did all of the applique work that is in this picture. It will be the center piece for another Cape Cod project. I really like the way that it has turned out. It has a modern touch to it - because it has a chocolate background, and modern roses in my bouquet! Cori is working on the piecing that will go around this center, and you will be able to see the finished piece in a few more weeks. And I already know that is will be one of my favorites.

Oh wow I love it! Those lovely earthy tones and the applique is just beautiful, makes my fingers want to grab a needle and start sewing! Can't wait to see the finished product. Cheers, Fer48

Beautiful applique and while browns aren't usually my colors -- these are fantastic!
