Quilts by Laurie LaConte

This month we have a variety of quilts made by Laurie LaConte! Laurie found this beautiful appliquéd quilt top on Ebay and had to redo the borders, layer it, and machine quilt it. And, she actually did it as opposed to those of us who acquire projects like that and never get around to doing it!
It has beautiful hand appliqué and now beautiful machine quilting! Click on pictures to see better!

It's never too early to think about Christmas!!

This bargello wallhanging has crystals scattered over the top that sparkle!
The prairie point edge is a nice touch!
Beautiful machine quilting done by Laurie! See more of her quilting here!
