The fourth quilt I have on display at this time of the year is called Tudor Echoes, and is related to my Sub Rosa (shown yesterday).
The two of us worked the Kaleidoscope Hoffman challenge side by side, but on either side of the Globe. We checked our progress weekly, a kind of private WIPW report, and fondly refer to our quilts as Lizzy. I am sure you can recognise some of the prints from my Sub Rosa in this quilt.
Jacquie is not only a talented quilter but has great skills as a dressmaker, too. She often combines quilting and dressmaking and makes 'wearable quilts', or rather quilted garments. Well, I am sure her wonderful creations are not to be worn, they kind of belong in a museum. Head over to her website and check the Gallery.
In this close up you can see her skill in Elizabeth I's costume. By embroidering the beige Hoffman fabric with black she created a bit of 'Blackwork' and the flute ruff collar is cleverly made. There might be more beads on my quilt, but the ones on Jacquie's are bigger!!!
