Meet Aline

The second retreat attendee to be featured is Aline. She is a retired graphic artist. Her quilts are precise and well thought out. She finished this Bullseye quilt top in no time and everyone agreed that her borders add greatly to this exchange-block quilt. (Please notice Gus, the dog, who you will meet later.) Here is Aline at work on a Thanksgiving quilt done from a panel which she is very accurately cutting apart.
The finished Thanksgiving quilt. The words - Give Thanks - will be added later.
Aline working on a crazy 6-patch batik quilt. Once again she is very, very carefully measuring.
The finished colorful quilt.
Aline also does redwork and beautiful embroidery. Her handwork is as precise as her quilting. Quilt labels done by Aline are as wonderful as her quilts. Lately she has been doing a lot of machine quilting and her artistry shines through in that also.

Come back tomorrow for the next featured person. There is talent galore in my little Bee group.
