Pattern: Winter by Crab-apple Designs
I love hand embroidery.  This was a good project that kept me busy for awhile.  The poinsettias and leaves are 3 dimensional and made out of wool.  This quilt was early in my quilting career.  Now I would have quilted the white background before I added all the beads and wool embellishments.  I always hang it in January and February on my wall.

This quilt is based on techniques shown in Jackie Robinson’s book, “Quilts In The Tradition of Frank Lloyd Wright”.  I modified one of her patterns to enable this quilt to be used as a window valance.  I found that stain glass quilt designs give the appearance of real stain glass when used over windows.

As a watercolor painter, I became intrigued by a book by Pat Maixner Magaret & Donna Omgra Slusser titled “Watercolor Impressions”.  I drew on their color value concepts to design this quilt.  I used 2″squares of flower design fabrics, ranging them in color values to form the center heart.
