Quilted map - Game of Thrones

 I've been working on a quilted map inspired by the Game of Thrones.
Above is the North.
..and detail of the middle section..
And the South. 

I free motion quilted the outline and the names, the rivers, and the mountains. I hand stitched the King's Road and the trees and some stars for the cities. Finished it up with rubbing some color into the muslin to achieve an aged look. The hardest part of the whole process was getting the pictures taken!

1st quilt 2013 - Love is Louder shelter quilt

Here is the my first quilt start to finish of 2013. It is a donation to the local women's shelter. It is full of positive affirmations stitched into the white strips. It is made completely out of scraps. 

Because LOVE is LOUDER than verbal and physical abuse. 
Love is Louder than being homeless. 

Have a happy helpful 2013!
