Elizabeth's Forest

All of the quilts posted Elizabeth made to cover
 Smart Boards used in her school for teaching.
They are large! 
The reflection was sewn perfectly!

What a Hoot!

Meandered around the words.

Added tree and leaf lines.

Outlined the applique.

Added little howling swirls.

Elizabeth attached the cutest fluffy tail!

Elizabeth was clever as a Fox with the applique.

She added just the right detail of spots.

What a cute Raccoon!


Elizabeth made several quilts for the Bethlehem Christian School in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania
I think 12 in all!

A little snip-it from the email Elizabeth sent me:
Briefly, the "story" about the quilt is that I was frustrated with a quilt I was working on. It had sheep on it as I was trying to use the 23 Psalm as the verse. Finally, I gave up and purchased the pattern (my first, I always design my own). I didn't notice till I got home that the company's name was EWE-nique. Oh, God is sometimes so funny! I modified the design to fit what I was doing and added the bible verse. My dearest friend gave me the bible verse, & I just loved it. I went on the company's website to get the email address so I could send them a photo (also, very unusual for me to do). Well, I almost fell over.... right on their home page... was the same bible verse!--Elizabeth


Just because we all love looking at quilts, here are some others that I made for Bethlehem Christian School.

The original pattern is from Ewe-Nique Creations Elizabeth
then altered the pattern to work for her situation.

Below are some photos of the other quilts
 Elizabeth made for the school.

Elizabeth is one gifted quilter!
