Peace by Susan Greenwell

Susan says of her original design, "Raw edge applique, free motion stitching, stitching with the walking foot. Simple, yet effective."  We agree, and this brings to mind the old adage, "Less is more." The theme of Peace on Earth, with  the dove carrying the olive branch, flying through a hushed, starlit sky, is a beautifully depicted motif. Circular, swirling cut outs on the dove add visual interest, elegance, and sophistication.

Closeup, Peace by Susan Gladwell

Susan quilted this lovely work herself using a stationary machine. In this close-up, you can see the gold paint that embellishes the olive branch and the stem edges.

  1. We love your blog! Each post always brings smiles☺
    Happy New Year!

  2. Happy New Year to you! Looking forward to more quilty inspiration in 2017. May all your stitches be happy ones :)

  3. Beautiful, simple and a beautiful hope for the new year. Is this appliqué pattern for sale somewhere?

  4. It definitely is nice to see some simple quilting. While I admire the talent and skill of those who heavily quilt, I don't think dense quilting is necessary for every project. Sometimes less is more.

  5. That lovely bird flew right off the screen into my sketchbook.

  6. Happy New Year 2017
