Current quilting projects of Betsy Garcia

March 15, 2009

During my time with the Christ Church Sheffield quilt group this weekend, Betsy Garcia showed me some of the other quilt projects she has been working on.

Below is a picture of a round robin quilt that Betsy has been working on with a few friends. I was particularly interested in the applique shapes on the quilt. Betsy gave me a few tips on applique techniques. It is expected that this quilt will take a total of a year to complete.

The below photos are of a hand-made quilt that Betsy is working on for the Hancock Shaker Village. I was particularly interested in the combination of embroidery and applique techniques used on this quilt.
