She's been traveling. So have I. We're both home now. The difference is that Luv has been traveling to quilt shows. In fact a half dozen of my quilts have been visiting quilts shows that I've missed due to other commitments. So really Luv has been having more fun than me! And she earned a third place award at the Stephen Foster Quilt Show on the Suwannee River in White Springs, FL.
Anyhow, Luv was a project made using a pattern that accompanied Susan Brubaker Knapp's DVD "Master Machine Quilting", one of the Quilting Arts Workshop series. The DVD offered excellent instruction, and Luv was a fun way to practice thread sketching. Of course embellishing her was the most fun of all.
