"U" is for Umbrella Quiltie

The Alphabet Quiltie Swap on Fabric in Altered Arts 2 is nearing the end.  The letter for March is "U".  Penny our hostess selected the theme -Umbrella.  I found this fabric in my stash and added the geisha embroidery and a butterfly charm.  The embroidery design is from Hatched in Africa Designs.  They have some lovely oriental designs.  I was lunch enough to meet Santi at a workshop at Mulqueens here in Mesa a few years ago.  Such a lovely lady. They are based in South Africa.  If you have an embroidery machine, you might like to check out their designs.

Hi Pam,

Your quiltie turned out lovely. That fabric is perfect for the letter U. I thought it was an Open Theme and had finished mine and was ready to mail when I realized it had a theme. :( So now back to the drawing board. :(
So sorry I haven't visited lately but my youngest daughter was getting married and I was really busy. The wedding was this past Sunday and it was a Perfect day!
