Karen's Treasure Quilt This is Serafina!

This is Serafina! She is her family's treasure. She is always stylish, including her hot pick wheel chair! 
May the sun always shine on her!!

I printed her picture on 'PFD' white fabric then cut along her photo. I used a  layer of Thermore batting behind Serafina. You can peel the two layers of scrim apart and each side had wisps of poly fiber that is just enough to trapunto. Background trees, road, grass and sun appliqued. I used the back side of the sky fabric to tone it down and the back side of the road fabric to show more texture.

Tricia's Treasure Quilt- Family Time together

With the theme Treasure- I kept thinking about the few times our entire family gets to be together in a year. With 4 children, one daughter in law, two son in laws, three grand children and two step grand children. One family is in Colorado, another in New Jersey and two daughters are in the Boston area.
Talking with my daughter Eliza about the treasure theme she agreed that at Thanksgiving we were all able to be here. We took this photograph for our Christmas cards.  It was even hard to get the photo because the youngest was napping and another was sick but we were able to do it!

Eliza suggested the phrase that I free motioned quilted into the border.

Treasure is when you map out and search for a time to get everyone together in one place. These are the moments that you Treasure.
