Elisabeth’s Garden: A Tale of a Thousand Threads expresses the story of Elisabeth Grolet’s life and so much more. The quilt was awarded first place in the Small Wall Quilts—Hand Quilted category sponsored by Panasonic at AQS QuiltWeek®–Paducah, KY 2015.
Every block in the quilt is designed to highlight a specific stitch including the stages of stitching. Elisabeth uses these as reminders or as class examples. Although the big blocks in this quilt were machine pieced, the rest was all hand done, including the needle-turn applique. The crazy quilt embroidery stitches are splendidly executed!
