What is needle-painting?
Needle-painting is the art of using a variety of hand-embroidery stitches to creatively quilt and embellish a pre-printed or pieced fabric block. The block is then backed with coordinating fabric and finished with decorative binding. Fabric tabs are added for hanging.

"I have gifted each of my children and grandchildren with one of these keepsake quilts." J. Lacy Coughlan
Shown right, this woodland themed mini tree is 30" high and filled with a forest of snow covered pine cones, stamped tin stars, rustic bird houses, red berries, apples and mushroom birds. It is topped with an antique tin star and a spray of feathers.
“I am passionate about my artistic endeavors. I love the creation process; taking a selection of materials, cutting and sewing, gluing and painting, and finally merging them into something uniquely beautiful and pleasing. I enjoy challenging my artistic mind, delving into new ideas and venues. Perhaps that is why I create so many different things."
