“Snow Flowers” by Susan Stewart is a gorgeous wholecloth quilt combining machine embroidery, applique, lace inserts, crystals and exquisite quilting. It won a 1st place ribbon at AQS Paducah 2014, and Best Machine Workmanship at AQS Albuquerque 2015.
In the following video Susan explains how she made and applied the cut-out lace sections. She stitched embroidery designs from Zundt on water soluble stabilizer and combined them to create the lace.
The following video tells more of the story of this quilt. Perseverance was key to to seeing it to completion.
