Bitter Sweet

Bitter Sweet

This quilt is called Bitter Sweet.  The pattern is by Kim Diehl.   I loved making this quilt.  It is a wool applique on cotton.  I over-dyed my wools to give them more texture.  This is the first quilt that I hand quilted.  It is quilted in squares or cross-hatching.  I also quilted around the flower.  If you believe it, the wool is from thrift store finds.  You can get some great wool from the thrift stores.

This is Kim Diehl's Quilt.  I went to her class in Midway, Utah, to see what her technique was.  If you compare quilts you will notice that I made some changes.   She has wonderful quilt designs.   
These are closer up photos of the original
Kim has some beautiful fabrics that she designs too.
