Special Quilts

These are two heirloom quilts I've made in Martha Pullen heirloom classes taught by Lisa. They go in my hope chest to pass on to future generations someday. These quilts combine my love of heirlooming, embroidery, and quilting.

Heirloom Vest

This is the heirloom vest I made last year at a Martha Pullen retreat taught by Lisa and Carol. Its made of white linen with ecru and white laces and ribbon. We used all sorts of heirloom techniques like lace shaping, stippling, bridging, entreduex, puffing, tucks, cathedral windows... I love being able to wear what I create.
