I love Brazilian and silk embroidery!  The following photos showcase a stitcher’s wonderful talent that was incorporated into a lovely romantic quilt.

I admire a machine quilter’s confidence when she not only chooses to custom quilt (as opposed to an all over design), but chooses to showcase her (or him) quilting with a thread color that stands out from the background.  The next two photos are great examples of this.

The next quilter created interest by framing her floral design with a little bit of color in the form of piping.

Look closer.  There are great touches of embroidery, beadwork, and thread painting.  This attention to detail really creates a beautiful work of art.

Good things do come in small packages, and this miniature wholecloth is no exception.  The quilting is exquisite!  The crystals are a great addition to the piece…they don’t overwhelm the design, and add another element of interest.

Just look at the teeny, tiny stippling!

The next quilt is also a miniature.  It is a gorgeous fiber art piece featuring a floral design.  The intense color certainly pops and attracts the viewer!

I leave you with a closer look that shows the fabulous beadwork in the center of the flower.  Love it!
