Vintage Valentine

This beautiful quilt was made by Michele Byrum.  She does the most magnificent applique and then entrusts her lovelies to me.  This one recently won first place in the Masters category at the Sandy (OR) quilt show.  I had great fun with the backgrounds, pretty much using the design in the fabric as my guide. 

I have one of Michele's quilts on my machine right now.  Remember the Country Journal Chickens?  It is just fabulous.  I love that she changed her mountain in the center block to be Mt. Hood.  I'm hoping to be finished today so I had better get to work :)
