Remember the rickrack and flower quilt that I made and thought it needed “help”. Well, Jan in Atlanta came to the rescue and suggested that it needed some leaves. I couldn’t agree more – I think that will give it the pizzazz it needs. With so much on my plate right now, I asked Jan if she would like to take that quilt top and finish it with her own special touch for her granddaughter. So, Friday I shipped the top and enough fabric for leaves and binding off to Atlanta. You can visit Jan here at her blog, Geema Sews. She does some beautiful quilting, so it will be fun for all of us to see what she does with that top.
We visited with our daughter this past weekend for our grandson’s baptism. And what a delightful surprise to see a beautiful quilt that she received from a friend for our grandson. While I don’t know her friend, I do know from seeing this quilt, that she is a wonderful quilter. I loved this quilt so much that I have to show it to you. The overall design is very striking with the center pinwheel section set off with prairie points and a border and binding that accentuate it perfectly. I love the straight line quilting. (I’m going to try the same thing on a border soon.) And the fabrics are delightful. This quilt is almost too pretty to be used – it would be beautiful on a wall. But it is already being used as you can see that my daughter has washed it already. And it will be used and enjoyed for many, many years.
The fabric on the back is a tan color – on my computer it looks gray, but it is a very fun fabric and perfect for the back.
