Hi – this is Mona Phelps from Kentucky Whittaker Creations. Today, I’m going to talk about embellishments.
Hi! This is Mona Phelps with Kentucky Whittaker Creations. I have been sewing and quilting for close to two years and it's amazing how things can start to pile up.
The heart of a quilter is stitched together of dreams and adventures, of sorrows, determination, and joy. Through each period in quilting history, quilters have had unique stories to tell. Those stories were – and are still today – reflected in their quilts. And a quilt, like its creator, is composed of more than meets the eye. Before it becomes a beautiful finished piece, though, it is first but fabric and thread. And even before the two should meet, the fabric is lovingly and meticulously – if painstakingly – cut by a quilter. In fact, quilters’ stories are not reflected only in the finished product but also in their quilting methods – methods that have improved dramatically with time and innovation. Indeed, the evolution of fabric cutting is as storied as quilting history, as detailed as an intricate pattern, and as fascinating as the life, love, and laughter that together create each quilt.
