After taking the summer off.......

....Our quilt group met, and it was such a treat to share with each other again.  Today my show and tell will be the quilt of Debra Hale, who is part of our group.  She has created a masterpiece!

This is a Sue Spargo design, and I guess it is safe to share the pictures because the pattern is now out in a book form.  I think the road winding through is fabulous!

I fell in love with the lion.....he is incredibly awesome.

Cute water buffalo...

 and the rhino's and the giraffe.....cute little zebra too!

Adore the wart hogs and the hyena.....I could do without the snake.

Stinking cute owl.

It is a rather sweet looking hypo and crocodile.

It is an over load for the senses.

I favor the elephants.....and all the creatures......I am still dubious about the snake.

Debra does exceptionally beautiful stitching.

Debra also shared this dog....

....and this exceptional little coin purse or something small to care little sewing supplies.

.....and this gorgeous wide mouth bag.  A big salute to Debra's exceptional talent!

I want to say a big thank you for all of the lovely comments I have received......I've just been too preoccupied with life to sit down and have a chat with you.  Anything that was in Dawns booth at Sew Cherished Woolens, you should google her and give her a call.

  2. That quilt is a masterpiece to cherish! The amazing stitching is extraordinary!! Thank you so very much for sharing.

  3. Absolutely incredible! I cannot even wrap my mind around the possibility of making something like this. Thanks for the detailed look!
    LOL I sense a definite dislike of snakes. There must be a back story.

  4. Absolutely beautiful! So many hours spent on this and the result is a masterpiece. I too love the winding road. The bag is sew cute! Thanks for sharing.

  5. Tell Debra that is just beautiful - her stitching and all the pieces are amazing. Wonder how many years it took?

  6. Debra's quilt is absolutely awesome. I can't imagine the patience it took to put this quilt together. The stitching is fabulous.
