I just can’t believe how glorious this quilt is! It’s hard to express how amazing it feels to see a painting of mine eventually turn into something as wonderful as a quilt. And to see so many of my patterns all together in one fabulous piece is so exciting. I really, really, love it. I was hoping it was for sale when I contacted Lorrie Hockett. But darn it, it sits on one of her beds.
Lorrie explained to me that she created it along with Carole Moseley. Fantastic job both of you!
My walls are full of quilts so rather than make yours into wall hangings I put them together as a quilt, with the bright colors it is a very fun quilt to have on the bed. I added the plastic eyes, embroideried the names of each block, used fur fabric for the cows and used some decorative stitches on each block for added interest, I like to embelish my projects to make them more unique/individual. your patterns are so fun to sew and quilt, keep them coming!I have entered it in 2 shows and will do some more with it. After the applique’, it was turned over to Carole Moseley to do the quilting.
Carole said about quilting:
I have been a longarm quilter for several years and love doing custom work with no restraints. When I received Lorries quilt I could not believe my eyes. It made me happy the whole time I was quilting it. She is a beautiful quilter and excellent at appliqués. She gave me permission to do what I would like on the quilt. Each block was quilted with what I saw in that block. It was hard not to smile each time I looked at it. Thank you Lorrie for letting me quilt this fantastic quilt.
