ABC Quilt Complete and Work in Progress

Here is my completed ABC quilt.  I used the Husqvarna Viking embroidery machines to machine applique the letters.  For the fabrics I used a scrap bag from Sandi Henderson with a variety of her collections.  I love how the colors work so well together.  I used the Henna Garden in Raspberry for the binding.  The Henna Garden fabric is one of my absolute favorites.

I added the quilt label using the embroidery machine as well.  

And here is the butterfly table runner that I'm working on for an Embroidery Club project in June and July.  The little purple butterflies on the Orange Denyse Schmidt fabric are quilted using an embroidery machine.  I also straight line quilted around the squares using white thread.


And here's a picture of Anna, Troy and Aaron.  My sister Tracy was home from Virginia in May visiting with the kids.  Troy and Anna have had fun playing together.  And I've enjoyed holding Aaron since we haven't had a baby in a few years.  They went back home today, we will miss them.
