Embrodery ThreadThread

This embroidery work is highly computerized and slow going! One embroidered piece may require changing thread colors as many as 16 times and take as long as seven hours to complete.

Many thanks to all that purchased tickets to the Quilt Raffle. Thanks to Nancy DeLay and the Warren County Piecemakers Quilt Guild.  This group created this Quilt to honor the county's agricultural heritage.  Thread artists, Nancy, Linn Smith, and Diana Brown embroidered exquisite elegant panels depicting rural life. The the names of each Century and Heritage farm are represented on this quilt!
