We were privileged to sleep under this beautiful batik quilt for several nights
in our niece's guestroom.
Detail of a hand-appliqued block.
S.A. works in batiks and does exquisite hand work.
Evenings spent in her quilting area are a respite from a stressful and busy career as a nurse practitioner.
Another appliqued quilt.
Detail of wreath blocks.
S.A. has done a number of small quilts in Hawaiian applique.
Center applique from the calla lily wall-hanging.
S.A. is partial to batiks in shades of purple and lavender.
A cozy quilt on one of the small sofas in the living room.
I'm pleased to report that I finished most of the appliqued center panel for a small quilt
while sitting companionably each evening with this favorite niece.
My work is not as intricate as hers, but I'm inspired!
