Above & below are pictures of fused glass made by my friend Mindy, as thank-you gifts for helping with the wedding. She made 4 of the birch plates for her “sisters by heart” (so lucky me I got one!), & the trivets below (which are about 4 1/2” square), were given to every guest. I love using her little glass trivets for things like setting my tea-bag on, or keeping my little beads from rolling away when I am beading a project. They also make nice soap dishes & spoon rests. I am lucky to have lots of Mindy’s glass now.
She wanted it quilted similar to the design in the book, but I just couldn’t copy it, so I went inspired by the book. Similar, but different. You can click on any of the images to get a bigger picture.
It looked pretty neat from the back, when I hung it to get the full effect.
The next quilt to go on the frame is by Marilyn Moreno. I’ve hung it up to photograph & contemplate designs. I’ll play with my Bamboo, & do some different designs for her & let her choose (which is what I did for Jan too).
Below are 4 of the options that Jan had to choose from for her quilt.
