Customer Gems - Becky Brown
How about something a little different today?
Becky Brown is one of my local friends and is a member of Country School Quilters. She is known for her exquisite hand applique and hand quilting. If you participate in Barbara Brackman's block programs you will recognize Becky and will see this as being out of character!
Periodically our quilt club has challenge programs and Becky always steps way out of her box for the challenges. This piece was made for one of the recent challenges. She started by appliqueing the daylily with the intention of quilting it but then she went off the reservation and mounted it on a stretcher frame. I think it was a great decision!
The real surprise here is that every piece of fabric on this came from one piece of the Coleus Gradient! How cool is that?
If you have ever made anything with my fabric I hope you will consider sharing it on the Customer Gallery. In return you will receive a 20% coupon for the shop.

You read my mind! I saw Becky’s name and wondered if it was the same Becky Brown. I love learning that she does other beautiful quilts besides the repro work.

Beautifully presented. My applique friends love scraps of Vicki's fabric I give them.

Thanks for making such inspiring fabric and for sharing my little piece. I used many layers (half a jar!) of Mod Podge which intensified the colors and gave the whole thing a gloss. . .endless possibilities with your fabrics!
